I’ve decided that
I’ll be an escalator
And I’ll never wear

For

When I stop moving
And boots no longer crush me
I’ll just become stairs

And

I’ve decided that
The sun makes only shadows
And raw scorching burns

For

Now that I know to
Make a rainbow you must add
Water, tears returned

And

I’ve decided that
I’ll imagine this blank page
As just my fresh start

For

I’ll fill it with all
Of the words you never said
That pushed us apart

And

I’ve decided that
This sky goes unbroken when
It’s just a riddle

For

Without all of the
Cracks, how could we try to see
The stars a little

And

I’ve decided that
I never will be falling
Or hitting the ground

But

I’ll hit those blue skies
And laugh! I’m not falling just
Flying upside-down
