Skipped school

Jessie Aoife

Summer, 2015

I skipped school for the first time ever last week and I felt so alive! I was doing exactly what I wanted, and no one could stop me! We danced on the beach coming out of the sea and I made a new friend who I watched the sunset with while we spoke about how we wanted to look like the sky. I know that life isn’t a film, but it feels that way now and I’m in love with it.I’m so happy I could burst, and I think it’s because I have seen the darker places and I don’t want to go back there. I have so many friends and I love to dance! I am going to be something. This is the first time I have ever felt like I might matter. I mean something, I have purpose. I don’t know what it all means yet but I am sure the answers will come to me in time. For now, I am just thankful.
