Like The Leaves Change In Fall...

"You came and changed the seasons."

Like The Leaves Change In Fall...

You walked into my life touching it like the first specks of color that explodes on the leaves in fall. With each passing day, I erupted with the different shades you brought out from me. I changed yellow from the joy your smile brought me, I turned orange from the constant laughter you created. I even became a deep red from the sweet words you showered me with.

But the colors of fall end just as quickly as they begin, the leaves turn brown, shrivel, and die. You never smiled anymore, so I lost my yellow. You found no need to laugh anymore, so the orange faded away. And when your words became dull and toxic, my beautiful deep red transformed into a lifeless brown. My leaves all fell, and were raked away to be burned.

Before you came and ignited my life, I was a healthy green. And now, I have nothing to show of myself. You came and changed the seasons. You showed me the beauty of life and then allowed it to all fall away.

My array of colors did not captivate you, for you were not interested once they were fully radiating. You only wanted the chance to change the seasons. You only wanted to prove you had the power to bring out those beautiful colors within me. Once I was transformed, there was nothing left for you to change. So you left, and took all that you had created with you.

Now that I am left with nothing on my branches, I look like I am empty and decayed. I will stay this way for some time, but the best part about life is that my leaves will grow back. I will be healthier and stronger than I have ever been. And I will no longer think about the pain you caused, because I am alive in the spring.

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.
