Without light.

Heavenly light
Pouring through the sparkling lens
Of my window.

 

Dancing rainbows
Of light
Against my brow.

 

I always thought I was too
Undeserving of heaven,
But I realize I am too strong.

 

For hell,
Because I could never be the nightmare
Or monsters who broke me;

 

I have no remorse for being who I am—
So many people have tried to drown
Or water me down.

 

I am the mountains, flames, and tempest
Of heaven;
I refuse to stay on my knees.

 

When I was born to walk, swim, and fly—
I give both flowers and thorns
Because i am both light and darkness.

 

Yet I choose the spark of light every time
Because without light darkness
Wouldn’t be so beautiful.
