(5) Words: | AIM | LOSE | GUARD | AIR | DREAM

in this tough world
but don’t let them push you down,

make your dreams a reality,
not thin air,
but be happy in the attempt
if things don’t go your way.

So near and yet so far. Pebbles the mouse felt this way as she looked up at the large bin before her. The smell of the food tickled her tiny nostrils and it made her angry. She had injured her leg beyond repair many years ago. Vets didn’t seem to be much use to injured, stray mice.

I liked to come out here at night while they were all asleep and look up at my planet, try to catch a glimpse of my family. I hoped they knew me acting as a camera and stand was only for now.
