The whole idea of it makes me feel
like I’m in a soccer game
something like making a goal
or the feeling I get from winning
a relief of the psyche
a change of the soul.
You tell me it is too early to be looking back,
but that is because you have forgotten
the perfect time
and the beautiful memory
But I can lie in my bed and remember every detail.
At 4 I was a ballerina.
I could make myself spin and dance
by moving a certain way.
At 7 I was a princess,
at 10 a tom boy.
But now I am mostly looking out the window
watching the night sky
Back then it never seemed so bright
and the moon never glowed
as it does today, all the light shining through it.
This is the beginning of a new life, I say to myself,
as I walk through the past in my memories.
It is time to take things seriously,
time to gain knowledge.
It seems only yesterday I used to believe
that school wasn’t that important
If you told me, it wouldn’t matter.
But now when I look at the future,
I am proud.
I am happy of what I have accomplished.
