Adults always told me to enjoy school
for what it is because when I am finished with it,
I will hate having to wake up every day
and going to work.
I had laughed because that’s what I was waiting for.
I hated school and I wished I didn’t have to go back.
I’d much rather focus on a career than
sit in a classroom all day and learn about which
chromosome determines the sex of the baby
and who created the stonehenge and
what exactly it was made for.
Then they would lecture me and tell me that I don’t know
a good thing, until it is gone.
I am now in my third year of college
and I wish time would slow down, just a little bit.
I wish the Earth would stop spinning for a moment,
maybe freeze time in this other realm that people
sometimes speak about that may or may not exist
because I want these extra seconds.
I want to breath and enjoy this moment because
it is all happening way too fast.
Every time I close my eyes and wake up,
it is a new day; another day closer
to going out to the real world.
And I don’t want to.
I think about what adults used to tell me
and I wish I had listened.
Time is slipping right between my finger tips
and I didn’t realize it because I was too busy
focusing on the future.
When it’s gone, it’s gone.
And that makes me want it back,
so much more.
You ever think about when you were younger
and you fell and scraped your knee or your elbow,
you would cry until your mother would put a
band aid over it and kissed it. Suddenly, it all feels
much better. Even though the wound is still there,
it feels as if it is fading away.
I am still like that. When I sliced my finger
with a knife the other day, I looked at the blood
and I could feel the sting of the gash but when
he put a band aid over it, it suddenly felt much better.
It’s as if the burning sensation was quickly fading
underneath the band aid.
I think that’s how people are. We can obviously
put a band aid on ourselves but we need someone
else to help us. We think that we need others to
help us heal but here is the truth: we do not.
Our bodies are made to heal itself from injuries
our whole life, we have to thank ourselves for getting
better. We think we need to rely on others to give
us a hand and when they do, we rely on them or we
think they are doing a better job than we ever can
but here is a secret: you can fix yourself when you
You know how they always tell you in gym class,
“when you think you can’t run, you can run another
few laps?” When you think you have given all that
you have, you really have so much more to give.
how come no one ever talks about how hans was about to slice elsa’s fucking head off

Well winter did come.
