Spirited Away

I was once a spoiled child.

 

Taking everything for granted, I hardly stopped to notice my way of thinking.

 

Forever complaining,

Hardly thanking.

 

Until that fateful day where my parents took a short cut.

 

They hoped to beat the movers,

Instead they changed my way of life.

 

Caught in a world of spirits,

I tumbled around asking for work,

 

Bound by contract and under a new name,

I was set to work followed by rules,

 

Never to complain,

Always thanking.

 

At first, all I thought of was to free my parents..

To leave and forget.

 

But later on, I made friends.

True friends.

 

I never thought how I will have to say goodbye to them when I finished my goals,

But it came sooner than I had time to prepare.

 

Winning Alu-Baba's game, I set my parents free from their curse.

 

Saying my goodbyes,

Ignoring how my throat hurt,

 

I set off without looking back,

As much as I wanted too,

I made a promise

 

They helped me grow up,

I know I will never forget them as I hold the hair-tie that was made by my friends.

 

And I also know that I will never forget him.
