Asked over coffee and croissants on a sunny April morning
“Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in the heart.” ~ A. A. Milne
A Walk-Through: Girl In the Middle of Israel
6am and i pack my bag with a notebook for memories, fruit for food ● well oh, oh baby i ain’t got no plan ● i keep my phone off and earbuds in ● i move on to a whole new town with a whole new way ● i walked to another city and back
we’ll float on maybe would you understand ● i reached the Mediterrean sea and took my sneakers off ● gonna find another place, maybe one i can stand ● waded right in the sea and immersed myself in surrounding beauty ● got to the door and again, i couldn’t stop
i wasn’t hiding anything from myself ● if the world’s at large, why should i remain ● i was not afraid of myself and my imperfections ● but you still got your words and you got your friends ● now when too much time passes and the feeling is gone, i know i need a moment like this again ● walk along to another day ● i can find the feeling again because it’s within myself
For always listening
Your wisdom is beyond your years.
I’ll always be here
To listen too.
Lyrics from World At Large by Modest Mouse, “Good New for People Who Love Bad News” (2004)
