Mosaic

Some of us
Are really good
At putting together
Broken pieces
To make
A beautiful
Mosaic heart

Angel / Lapis Lazuli

I let go of the idea
That angels could exist
So I mixed stardust with water
To form my own wings
And became one instead

*

Lapis is my favourite gem after Pearl from Steven Universe.

Fish

It’s one thing
To encourage a fish
To jump out of the water
To experience the air
And stretch its fins.

But it’s entirely another
To tell that fish
To leave water completely
Falsely convincing it
It might become a mermaid.

There’s stepping out of your comfort zone to challenge and improve yourself ✔️

And then there’s believing you need to change your natural personality in order to become ‘better.’ ❌

Sometimes it’s hard to tell the difference – but that difference is so important.

Closing Doors

I’m always a little sad
When I have to close a door
To a chapter of my life
Because I’ll always remember
What was behind it.

And secretly
There will always be a part of me
That will want to re-open it.

Illusion

Let me keep living
In my happy illusion
Strengthened by
The memory of you

*

Just because you’re not here doesn’t mean I’ve forgotten you.

Knights

The prince took off his helmet,
Sat under the tree,
And began to rest.

“Won’t you rest too?” he asked.
“Never,” replied the princess. “I am the one who rescues.”

To which the prince replied,
“There will be times
When even a knight
Will need rest
Or even
Need rescuing.”

Knights are people too.

Doubting Stars

Even stars will doubt themselves.
They’ll float in the midst of darkness,
Surrounded by so many other stars,
Noticing how magnificently each one shines.
That star may never realise
How brightly they shine themselves.

Maybe the reason you don’t see it is because it’s stuck to your back. What I mean is, a person’s admiral qualities – they’re just like, say, a pickled plum on a rice ball.” – Tohru Honda, Fruits Basket
