Since I was young
I've always wanted to be the white fluff on a dandelion
The fluff that floats on the wind
Somewhere anywhere but in this place
I've always hated where I was
Who I was, and what I was
I wanted to be gone
I never wanted to live this life
Day after day this feeling grew in me
So every night I walked the deepest and longest forests
I spoke to trees, all kinds of trees
I made necklaces out of flowers, all kinds of flowers
I lay down and watched the sky
I imagined the stars holding hands
I connected them in my mind and made pictures out of them
But there was this one night
When I walked, walked, and walked
Then found a pile of rocks
And not just any ordinary rocks
But they were different shapes and colors
I held up one of them
And saw the letter (H) carved in to the heart of the rock
I held up another one
And saw the letter (O) carved in to the heart of the rock
I held up the third one
And saw the letter (P) carved in to the heard of the rock
I held up the forth and the last one
And saw the letter (E) carved in to the heart of the rock
I tried to put the letters together
Then I figured out
It was the word (HOPE)
Hope! Hope! Hope!
This small word made out of four letters
Had brought me back to life
I no more tried to hide in forests at night
But I went there every morning
And listened to the whistles of the birds
All kinds of birds
I enjoyed every bit of this environmental life
Until now I still go there
And look for the next word I would find
Carved in to rocks …
