...and when the night comes too dark...

I will change myself
and that is ok.

I will take the stars and put them in my eyes
and light my own path
through the night that traps me whole.

I will drink more water
and travel
to where my lungs can breathe fresh air.

I will throw away my contouring kit
and let the moonlight define my cheekbones
and my high-bridged nose.

I will write poems
about 'misfits' and 'messed ups'
and finding our way.

I will bathe my heart in sunlight
and in salty waters
I will swim further than i've ever dared before.

I will change myself
because I want to be happier.

... and that is ok.
