A Change for Summer
Everything becomes routine.
Wake up, get dressed, and head out.
Check in to the same job every day.
Punch out and head home for dinner.
Walk alongside the skyscrapers tourists can't get enough of.
Swim through a sea of accents and languages you've never heard of.
Squeeze into the snail we call a train and endure the bad hygiene impossible to ignore.
Force yourself out from the slime and take on the stress of making everything work out.
Summer comes along and it feels like things start to change.
The sun shines and calls to be baked under.
Planning of trips become more important
White sand beaches, the smell of coconut sunscreen, and the cool crystal clear water against the skin.
Relaxation awaits, excitement intensifies and suddenly a smile appears.
Weight gets lifted off the shoulders,
Vacation is set as the numbered days slim down to tomorrow
It's finally clear that the right decision has been made.
