Seven

Long ago and now seemingly like yesterday
was daybreak when i decided to go my way.
A walk I took down my street,
a concrete path and my feet...
Breathing in and breathing out,
a little bird was about.
The trees, the leaves on the trees,
a gentle breeze, 
the sky above- fell in love... 
Was thinking about the past years
was half way to heaven,
a healthy young girl
was only seven.
These feelings rushed through me
with nature was one
me, past, future and my very own sun.
Was right then- all came together,
perhaps was the walk combined with the weather.
Am really not sure how it happened to me,
a one off thrilling epiphany.
Time- I calculated throughout my soul
these feeling I felt- myself as a whole
Peeping through the door of the future
Peeping through the door of the past
There was no other time like right then
when...
I was half way to heaven
when...
I was seven.

A wonderful verse, Paris-Maree. We do have deep thoughts already at a young age. T.J

Thanks Gershon Wolf, I'm all all round freestyle artist so I guess this particular poem is a prime example of that lol =D

Sometimes, in an instance, life seems to fall into place, uniting with ease our past and present while smoothing the path leading to future days. Your words have the power to do all this, Paris. Regards // paul

Hello Paul, Thank you for the comment. I'm not sure how often this happens to others but it only happened once for me, when I was seven and never forgotten. Was one of the most special times in my life and I don't believe it would had happened if I didn't have that time by myself, Indeed it was a walk to remember :)
