I sway I sway
From one side to another.
Weak fingers stretched
To the limit of their strength.
A single wind blows
And I come crashing down,
All hopes forgotten, shattered within me.
Cries break out from my throat
Tears come streaming down my eyes.
No one seems to be around
No one is around.
And then, just when I feel I can’t do it anymore
Can’t take it anymore
A light blooms deep within me.
Something that is just me
Gathers and collects and strengthens
Blinding my eyes
Lifting me from the ground, away from the mess
Towards a sun that is cold, cold
But beautiful, magnificent, breathing
My hands reach towards it
Wanting to touch my light.
Sky on my fingertips;
I break, break, often I shatter
But something in me refuses to
Give up, give in.
I’ll renew each once, shine bright
For this is who I am
This is who I am.
I’ve written this one for a friend.
