Sky

I know you won’t accept.

But, you’re something else…

Cause, I see a part of you

that’s witty, beautiful & in love with life. 

& I wonder how frightening it must be,

To keep two such opposite realities inside-

Where one half wants to live 

& the other one wants to end life. 

But, this other part?

It’s a star.

It needs your darkness to shine.

It peeks from the clouds

& demands it’s own light.

It speaks from your words 

& demands it’s own rights. 

& you don’t realise,

but that’s your own part, too. 

So, you have a choice. 

Cause this part wants hope

& this part seeks life.

…But you know what?

You’re not even that.

You’re something else.

You’re not something that can be judged in pieces. 

& your brightness can’t be judged by a single star-

Or just by your darkest patch. 

You have to see the whole picture for that. 

…You are not just a sad story. 

You’re the magnificent, starry midnight sky.

& that’s entirely something else…
