[august 23. 2011. Kiel, Germany]
a few weekends ago i spent my saturday evening
exploring the city with my new friends.
we laughed so much my stomach hurt
we danced so much my shoe fell apart.
we met less than a month ago
i already feel like i’ve known them
for years on end.
later when we were at a
sang my heart out.
my new friends?
they kindly listened to me sing
and even though a few people
gawked at the american girl
singing along with the music
at the top of her lungs-
tried to sing along.
when the song was over
we all high-fived.
and that’s when i knew:
these friends are going to be around for a long time.
