Beneath Only Sky

Feet are bright grounders
to earth.
Starry points keeping you down.

No, only choices,
fear and your own will
keep you here.

Where would you go?
Somewhere where no one has breathed

Somewhere completely your own.
a place undone in high aching

My child, are you a poet?
why ask a question you already know the answer to?

Sometimes people change...
everything changes, it is out of our control.

You are wise for a youngling.
Whoever said younglings weren't wise?

An oldling?
you are growing, my child

I am no child.
everyone is a child on the inside just as everyone is a poet on the inside.

Who are you?
wish on me, I am a star,
I am a dandelion,
I am a candle,
I am temptation,
I am dreams,
I am what you want me to be.

What can you promise me?
I promise nothing but hope
