you still shine.


you still shine.

stumbling around in the dark becomes the norm when you’re somewhere you don’t recognize

you think it’s normal to be lost in a dizzying confusion when you’re in a new location seeking insight from the wise

your weak fingers shake as you try desperately to find a light to illuminate what’s around you

and although you cannot see, you make up stories of the scary things that are waiting out there to get you

your cheeks are wet with tears, your breathing becomes shallow

you count the lies you’ve told, and the feelings of your insides being carved out to be nothing but hollow

i want so badly to tell you that everything is going to be okay

i understand that you were never going to stay that way

despite the chaotic darkness that shrouds your restless mind

you still shine

you always will

so flick on the light and look around you

know that you can always change your life and make it beautiful

and enjoy every moment of it, too


• xoxo •
