Everything is Awesome

When I was little girl.

I would often have my eyes closed.

My father thought that I closed them because I was ready for a nap.

My mother thought I had allergies.

My brothers thought I was crazy.

But the truth they'll never know is

That I would close my eyes so tight

Until a kaleidoscope of colors would blow my mind.

Then I would open them slowly

To once again see the beauty

Of the world before me.

It was magical.

And for those few kaleidoscope like seconds;

Everything was awesome.
