i wanted to be like the sky

i wanted to be like the sky


it was painful


must be how stars feel like when they are born


but worth it

bright and beautiful


but there are trillions

or even more

probably more

i’ve lost count every night

and i started way back

ever since i learned how to count


always remembered to carry the one


i only have one

it was painful

but worth it


it is of my favorite one that can only be found on me

though i’ve never seen one up close

in real life to know for sure


i would like more

but my skin can only hold so much


i may not be able to outshine the stars

never tried to

we will both fade together

over the years

but unlike them

mine will never fully disappear
