I was going through my old journals and found an old poem that I wrote back in 2006 (in my teens). Brings back memories of exploring and experiencing the world on my own, and retreating back to my apartment and write whatever that came to mind depending on what emotions I was feeling, of course.
I don’t remember what inspired this poem but I think it’s kind a cute. Tell me what you think.
From my teenage self to you, I present The Gifts of Life:
Give me life so I can live
Give me strength so I can carry on
Give me faith so I can believe
Give me love so I can pass it on
Give me laughter so I can share it
Give me dreams so I can make them come true
Give me the truth so I don’t lie
In the end, give me peace so I can rest
