"I want to keep walking away from the person I was a moment ago, because a mind was made to figure things out, not to read the same page recurrently." — Donald Miller


Tears as stars
Surrounding.
Sighs leaving,
creating swirls
of milkyway
in the brisk night.
Enchanted dewdrops,
Ice, harsh yet relieving,
returning, reliable grief.
Brief sparkles,
-Bringing Van Gogh into reality-
leave misfortune and me,
Awestruck.
Stars shining through
Dense, foreboding clouds,
-blankets to shield the
Ungrateful newborn lights-
seem to sense my discomfort
of the paint-chipped wooden deck.
Skull swelling through pain,
persisting.
Mind leaves encampment,
Ready to leave the
Suffering,
to float free amidst these celestial saviors.
Peace
Is
Found.

The stars have always been special to me. They symbolize hope and freeddom. This poem only begins to desribe their power.
