F. Javier "Javi" Carrera
Poet, music lover, learner of life, and occasional goofball. Lover of mountains and ocean, of snowboarding, hiking, fishing, of his family, and of Callie.
Owner of a huge heart and the most beautiful smile.
Beloved son of Francis and Ana, brother of Alex and Paula, brother in law of Mike, uncle of Huey.
You left us way too soon and we already miss you unbearably.
The Sound of Music
I think the time has come
for me to move on
‘cause the future has healed
and there is nothing wrong
I work all week
I really have changed
not to mention what I gained
a new reality’s come
and the sorrow is gone
thought I’d wait forever
but it really didn’t take long
‘cause my wish is here
and my dream is near
just think what’ll happen in another year
that’s about it
‘cause I found what I’m looking for
just to chill with my family, couldn’t ask for any more.
Javier Carrera, Age 14 (Published in the Anthology of Poetry by Young Americans, 2007 edition)
