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

difficult

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
