We see the same stars
So much to say that the words just evade me
So many thoughts that can lift or degrade me.
All of this trauma is the creator that made me
I'm fighting harder and harder every day.
I find myself getting lost on my path to my truth
I try to look forward though I grieve my own youth
They say looking back is not the way to self soothe
But my comfort is the result of my way.
Sometimes I divert, just for a little break
From this path full of obstacles that lies in my wake
Just sit in the darkness and forget what's at stake
Being alone is what revives and restores me
I never expected what I was expected to expect
My tendency is naturally to rebel or reject
It's not right or wrong or even mild disrespect
The truth is the truth whether known or unknown
I am what I am. It is what it is.
There is so much to know to even understand this.
Acceptance is one surefire way to find bliss
But I have to figure it out on my own
I am what I am. You are what you are.
But if we look up we see all the same stars.
Each one unique to itself and galaxy
Painting one sky for all of us to see
