Viva La Vida

Because nobody else will.

Those nostalgic days of yesteryear forever

seared into my memory have become

indelible symbols of the ornate uniqueness of



How many times did we play soccer during lunchtime

or go ice skating without any skates?

Commandeering the slide for our own glorious purpose

and swinging up to endless heights.

Dunking on our own hopes and dreams and

carving our own niche in a world that could never comprehend what it truly means to be alive.


Through the summits and bases,

we never lost that childlike wonder that defines us.

Because it’s eternal.

Because we were out there searching for a meaning

that was right in front of us the entire time.
