Belief

Pain ripples off your skin
but you still walk,
still speak,
still move even
when the world wants
to stop you,

and all I want to do is hold you,
feel your heart beat,
help you know you’re alive.
Help you see the beauty
in your strength,
the love inside your pain.

And see what phenomenal could be.

You have stars in your eyes
blinding you,
breaking you,
bilking you
into believing
you don’t deserve more,

but those stars are wrong.

They don’t want to lose your spark
so they suffocate it
until you only see the darkness,
but look for the light.
It’s there,
hiding amongst the frauds,
falling through the cracks.

Dive after it.
Don’t lose your fire
amongst someone else’s ashes.

~Patience
