The Beginning

Written by: kristen bruni

I've always tried to understand 
the meaning of my mind. 
Why do I love the color green
and why am I too kind?

Why does music keep me alive
songs play in my head. 
Staring at my childhood picture
my image strong as lead. 

Barely 5 with green shirt on
staring off in space. 
Sweater threaded music notes 
rock and roll, please no lace. 

Mouth half way open
belting out a tune.
Eyes piercing through you
Sun so hot in June. 

Different from the others
the leader of the pack
The photograph that keeps me
Forging forward never back.
