At Peace.

This Sunday morning when I arrived at school to complete my essay, I instinctively went to the same table I've sat at everyday this week writing, working, analyzing. To my surprise I found the very same cup of cold coffee that my dear friend left on the very same table on Friday afternoon. This is actually not that odd, to be honest, but because of this discovery I was overcome by a sense of belonging. 

This feeling was mixed with thoughts on independence and solitude. When I woke up as the the light from the window hit my bed this morning, I thought to myself how delightful it is to wake up alone to a day that is in its entirety decided by me. 

Tears and fears
and feeling proud
to say I love you
right out loud
dreams and schemes
and circus crowds
I've looked at life
that way

but now old friends
are acting strange
they shake their heads
they say I've changed
well something is lost
but something is gained
in living every day

I've looked at life
from both sides now
from win and lose
and still somehow
it's life's illusions I recall
I really don't know
life at all.
