I am outside all alone and listening the leaves
moving back and forth and the leaves are on big brown trees
I feel like I am at home
but more peaceful than at home
it is like a good breezy morning and it smells like fresh strawberries and it is morning light
I take a walk around the park and I see a great big bear in front of me and my sky is as blue as my slushie.
