Nighttime

By Amy Nguyen

Nighttime is

blooming

and

becoming your own

flower.

 

Being alone

feels like

floating back

in cool, majestic water

watching the graceful sunset

on the sandy beach.

 

Freedom.

Watching the lights from the street,

cars,

stores,

glaring at me.

Cars blasting music,

People dancing,

Drunk,

Having fun.

The world seems so peaceful

Yet it isn’t.

 

Realizing how beautiful the world is

is a tremendous feeling.

 

Being independent.

sovereign.

separate.

is what makes me my own flower at

nighttime.
