One day, the world will dance for you

One day, the world
Will dance for you,
So don’t stop your crying
if it can ease the pain,
Those puddles will grow into lakes
And the sky of your lifetime
Will silver in a waxing sun,
Bleaching dusk into dawn.

One day, you will carry
Their sand in your hourglass,
So don’t let the world sugar-coat your
Lemon-puffed eyes to stop the tears,
Breathe hard against the winds
Trying to catch you in a storm of
Foreign thoughts.

One day, your feet
Will lift from the ground,
So don’t let your heart become skinny
from spreading out too far,
Even feathers can grow heavy
in the pouring rain,
And singular exhales come
With a far too heavy price.

We’re not the only ones

We came here as children in search of a dream,
But now we are bleeding from the past,
Again and again we make mistakes that will last.
We break laws like glasses,
For we don’t understand at all
The meaning of walls.

We run until our souls unfold,
Not worrying about wasted time,
Until our story is told.
We stay until the lessons are learned,
Sharp enough to cut the corners
Of the world.

We brave the weather to mend our scars
Fixing shards like model planes
But we’re not the only ones
To love without a perfect heart.

We close our eyes to silver linings
At the risk of breaking apart,
Stabbing blue skies to find the stars.

We run until our souls unfold,
Not worrying about wasted time,
Until our story is told.
But we’re not the only ones
To love without a perfect heart.

The Forerunners of Courage

We are the forerunners of courage
blossoming above the snow
from star-sown fabled ports
we rise into a brave undaunted dawn
sweet with the breath of our bloom
we curl over the greying shores
like pulsating gleams of Light
we fall through cracks of stone
