Sweet Susanville

Written by my eldest granddaughter~

Sweet Susanville 

Waking up in the middle of nowhere, 

hearing the birds chirp, 

hearing the sweet sound of 

the mountains call me. 

Learning to ride my bike, 

learning to kayak, 

learning how to do color guard, 

all within these lonely hills. 

I remember driving to this 

one supermarket, 

learning to help 

my family set up 

the shop for the busy 

day ahead of us. 

Growing up on the

world’s best donuts, 

having a veggie delight 

sandwich everyday at noon, 

driving around to the closest 

lake and going

for an afternoon swim. 

The rest of the world not understanding that

it’s not about things we have, 

it’s about the memories we’ve made 

in the places we’ve been. 

All these memories confined

within this small town, 

like animals in a zoo

like fish in a tank. 

The point of my ode is this, 

be appreciative of the small things, 

cherish everything you

have before it is gone.
