"celebrate true nonconformity" - LunarBirth


I will not tarnish

but hold my fire
like the stars
Inside my heart is Luna
like how inside a wolf's mouth

is howl
I am a seed
nestled in a flower's throat
a flower that only blooms

once in a heartbreak
I am a silver coin
nestled in the depths of your jean pocket
And I will not tarnish
but hold my fire

like the stars.

I think it means to be true to yourself even through tough times.
