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
