The slightest change can shake your foundation;
But even a rocking ship does come to a halt.
When you're embarrassed of yourself,
When being you feels like social suicide,
When trying desperately to erase your actions,
When nothing anyone says helps;
I like sitting by myself at night to just reflect.
The beauty of the night, for me, being that I'm alone;
Alone with my thoughts, feelings and God.
I'm as unadulterated and pure as I can be.
When I feel the urge to run for cover again,
I like opening up my windows to stare at the night sky.
Simply feeling the cool breeze on my skin is healing.
When I look at the distinct orange tint in dark clouds,
When space reaches out to hold me in tight embrace,
As I absorb it's serenity, stillness, and vastness;
I know that it accepts me- it accepts me for all I am.
It loves like no other, soaking up every one of my hurts.
Suddenly, I think to myself-
Who is more important to you?
The whole world? OR You, yourself?
Does the truth of your emotions matter?
Or Does the sting of mockery hold greater strength?
No matter where I go, the sky doesn't quit on me.
I love that it always is a tiny tilt of my head away.
It comforts me when no one else can invade my fortress.
If you're looking for a friend, trust me;
You really need to look no further!
Be exactly who you are.
Don't cover the traces you leave behind.
You're beautiful inside-out.
Let your trail shine and brighten someone else's path.
