Home At Last


Home At Last

I wish to turn my scars into stars

To see the pain become light

To trace constellations with my finger

So that I can say I caressed the cosmos

I am far

So far

From the world below

And the suffering that consumed me

I am soaring through the magic that made me

The stardust

The energy

The light

I have returned home at last

I whisper secrets to the universe

A lonely soul adrift in this expanse

Longing for a voice in the silence

I dance amongst the sea of stars

No longer numb to this feeling of life

Untethered to my vessel

Sailing my ship through the infinite

Yet lost in the fleeting

Allowing my fingertips to kiss the stars

Thank you

My body is everything

Unfolding before me
