not all sky is stars

your life is your own
even when it’s hammered
into something else, something
you don’t recognize. there is
always a way, always a way out,
a light,
a chance,
a hand.
nothing is all darkness,
and not all sky is stars –
but each scrap of life
is important. you cannot just
get by, or get through,
you must wring it out,
every inch of it,
every last laughing moment.
when something is offered, take it.
when love is given, revel in it.
when truth is revealed, say thank you
marvel at everything
and don’t look back.
out there, there is a tomorrow
with your name of it.
it may be a girl
who loves you
despite your fear, despite
the things you’ve hidden
from yourself. remember:
not everything is darkness,
not everything is light.
there is always a way in,
there is always a way out,
and all truth – all chances –
begin in the heart.
