I hope to walk this path alone just for a little while, to appreciate the quiet, become the faint rustling of the leaves as they brush back against branches. It is tiring to be among others for so long; the wish for rest becomes necessity. I have never been camping before, but there are days when I understand the appeal. I, too, would like to escape. Green has become one of my favorite colors-- wouldn't it be something special to look up and see green in the sky? Perhaps that evokes a sinister image of chemicals and superhero movie villains, but I see calm spreading like a blanket over me, and me alone.
I hope you enjoyed this piece! Life is getting super chaotic since I have all of my AP tests coming up and the school year is almost over– it’s crazy to think about. This piece was inspired by my self-reflection regarding my introverted ways. I’m really craving some solid alone time and relaxation right now… good thing summer isn’t too far away.
