I want you to thrive,
I want you to be happy.
I want you have everything you dreamt of,
I want that something to be me.
Keep warm now the whole world’s freezing,
now I know why you move so timidly.
Learned to slow down & to look around,
checking the map & passing it along.
How many tumbles you omitted?
How many you forgot?
Does it make you feel like a god who
gets to decide what’s right, what’s wrong?
The few that came back,
nobody’s as intact.
The places you’ve been,
even fewer can relate.
Easy on the mends,
freedom at your command.
No longer a diamond in the rough,
you’re a shining star.
