Experiencing Freedom

The Bliss of Freedom.

Fireworks bursting in the night sky

Graduation caps soaring in the warm air

Relief and bliss tenses in everyone’s vibe

Oh, how great it is to finally taste freedom.


Packing boxes, leaving family behind

Anxiety, and nerves built up inside

No longer a lost kid

But a soul on a mission


Mother’s tears of joy

Father’s pat on the back

Hugs from thrilled siblings

The brick of family that doesn’t crack


2014 here I come

Ready to experience

Ready for fun.
