Ever wonder how long it takes to change your life? What measure of time is enough to be life-altering? Is it four years, like high school? One year? An eight-week walking tour? Can your life change in a month, or a week, or a single day? We’re always in a hurry to grow up, to go places, to get ahead… but when you’re young, one hour can change everything.
Fire exploded in the sky
Igniting a fire in my day.
A new leaf grew and turned in the sun,
Growing from the darkest part of my soul
Into the light exploding in the humid, night sky.
From the dark warmth of that summer night
Fireworks exploded for days.
The world surrounding, did not matter anymore
As the Booms, Cracks, and Snaps of the blasts
Fireworks echoed across the lake and erupted high in the distance.
Four days later, the light again fillled the night sky
A little further in the distance this time,
Illuminating how to finally move on.
Colours so vivid, light up a night sky previously seen so dull
With open arms welcoming blessings of a fresh new year.
