It's a feeling when you are infinite.
Some express it with their new music playlist
that makes them feel like dancing through the night.
Some feel it when they are with their friends,
cruising down the dirt road with the sunset behind them,
not knowing where they are going.
Others get it when they're showing off their new piece of art
at the school's environmental and art fair.
It is when you feel
that you feel most alive.
The time before you see the world a different way.
I have found you experience this a lot when you're
at the peak of your childhood.
About fourteen or fifteen
when you can be a child and an adult at the same time.
It's when I'm watching '80's movies or
hanging out with my friends as I watch the sunset
that I am
all of the things
I have dreamed of being.
It's the key to life-
to never lose your innocence
That you should enjoy the people around you
I'm almost fifteen
and I have already fallen in love
with being alive.
I hope you will and do, too.
