Bali' 14

In October (I am aware that it is now December, I am just a very inefficient person), I had my last school trip to Bali. These are the photos (and a video).



I thought this statue was hilarious.

Ubud

Enjoying me ice cream.







Yoga!


Me and my cornrows (that got itchier by the day (yes i did wash)).


At the Green Camp.










Chocolate granola. In my belly.

I Wish Life Was Simple

I wish
Life was as simple as 
Drinking tea
On a cold day

I wish
Life was as simple as
Wearing shoes
For a day out

I wish
Life was as simple as
Strolling through
A park in Spring

I wish
Life was as simple as
Peeling an
Unripe orange

I wish
Life was as simple as
Treading through
Falling, thick, snow

I wish
Life was as simple as
Chasing the
Boy of your dreams

I wish
Life was as simple as
Coming out
Of wild currents

I wish
Life was as simple as
A bullet
Through my head

Safe and Sound

Late nights, early mornings
Waves crash down and down
There are no warnings
No stop sign, no red lights
Am I safe and sound?

Light knocks, scratched knees
No pain felt they're numb
Pain is felt, the knocks grow stronger
A slow, steady drum

Let the flood, let it spread
Don't sink, my dear
It's getting to my head
Scratch the sand
Don't let it stop you- fear

Latch on, it pleads to me
This fight is a war
I have bled my share
Defeated, on the floor

Last repeat, one after another
Waves crash down and down
There are no warnings
No stop sign, no red lights
Am I safe and sound?
