Because you craved a diminutive dream For what was so seemingly extraordinary Especially for you You awarded it with a false ideal of Forever And, you now know that forever isn’t any more true For a rock, or an ocean, or, you Especially, you [when change comes, breathing new life, beautiful estuaries replace barren slopes] Yet, deep inside the comforts of static You held a glimmer of hope in your hands A glimmer that turned into a sun Which burned too hot to touch Scalding You had to let it go But that sun didn’t generate its own energy, It didn’t burn from within its core And that, especially for you, Is why it now no longer shines Forever is too long for anything Especially, for you Be the sky, not the mountain Be everything, not one thing Be all encompassing, not fixed All of the times you have been afraid of floating ...of movement ...of change Now know, this is where you belong This is where Fire can burn brighter than any sun Especially for you
