Peace of Mind
by Natalie | April 2, 2015
(Submitting on behalf of my child Natalie.) Submerged in blue, I am nostalgic with memories. Happy places and good things come to mind, as I am engulfed by liquid. There is no gravity within the core of this peaceful place, and my feet refuse to touch the ground. Euphoria and pleasure fill me as I imagine every piece of peace itself in its purest form. Breathing this air that I cannot actually inhale cools the heat in my bones, and camouflages every happy tear. In this world, smiles are permanent and never disappear, even as the water flushes away with the sand. Just like every other day, it's a good day because there is air in my lungs and blood in my veins, and when there are no words I can still say what I wish to say. What is there not to smile about? There is everything to smile about. There is a sky and that sky is blue, beautifully blue. There is grass, wispy and elegant grass, shaded a gorgeous green. There are seven continents to see! How can you not smile, when to you they haven't all been seen? But remember, when there is nowhere left to go, you can always go home. At the end of the day, under the light emitted by the moon, you can still raise the corners of your lips. Because tomorrow will be a perfect reason to smile again.
