This is the truth of things
there will be moments in your life that will be exhausting.
You will understand the power of ocean tides eroding cliff sides
the same way loneliness has the power to erode humans.
It is okay to hold on tight
and to let go.
Look around you.
This world can feel mighty.
Pack up the dust of all that you are.
Drench your fingers in starlight.
Let the light flow through
let it trickle through the crevasses of your being
let it howl
let it roar
let it be thunderous
for you are an auroral dance.
there will be tides that will unclench their fists and drown your entirety
there will be wolves and monsoons inside of your lungs
your ribs will become branches that snap in the most subtle of motions
veins cradling splinters and agony
there will be mountains you cannot move.
Feel the head on collision of tectonic plates, and rise.
Thirteen point seven billion years ago our universe sprung into singularity
stars have died
oceans swelled into deserts
creatures ceased to exist
but tonight you are here
in carbon, in oxygen, in hydrogen, in flesh, in blood, in bones, in finger nails
in creases that resemble canyons inside of your palms that held anothers who once swore they would stay.
A miracle unto yourself.
and return in ten trillion sunrises.
