Falling’s Easy

The other day, my father took me on a bike ride through some trails by our neighborhood. He goes bike riding rather often and I don’t at all so I was definitely expecting a challenge. But, to my surprise, when we started, it was all downhill. As we kept going, the downhill continued, some bits… Continue reading Falling’s Easy

California Dreamin’

I wanna be in the suburban California streets White sands of the beach submerging my feet A splash of salt from the sea caught in an ever so gentle breeze Said I wanna be in Cali where it's always 75 degrees Beneath towering palm trees that always seem to be waving as if to say… Continue reading California Dreamin’

And for anyone who has… Continue reading San Francisco to Eureka! 🚙 🎒 ⛰

My Family, My Home

There's only one place where I'm able to feel Only one place where I'm not wooden, but real This is a place I race to go This place's name is home I miss waking up way before the sun I'd sit downstairs and wait for my mother's love She'd make breakfast Enough for my brothers… Continue reading My Family, My Home
