Hey you.
Happy Birthday.  

(This is a letter to myself in an unconventional prose format. I’m turning 21 tomorrow,  and feeling inspired)

1.  I just wanted to tell you
that it’s okay….
to celebrate yourself.  
not just today,  but every day
every moment.  

2. So,  age 20 hit you in the head
It was vast,  and sudden

My fears with pain
And weigh my heart
Down with a lie

I want to lose myself
In questioning
Who I am
And why

Through Internal Flames

When the sun loses it’s
place, and strays too far from home,
Trees fall to ash, and embers win.

Red jasper crumbles and blends into
beds of common sand.

Stars fall and puncture the organs
Of the universe that rests
beneath the Earth...

But the moon will always remain
Strong and gleaming.
Come nightfall, she will remind
all creations of nature’s resiliency.

She will send a stream of vetiver
that trickles between mountains
To wash the ash away,

As the sun carefully rises, and
the surviving trees sway slowly
With the mellow breeze,

Life commemorates the ones that
were lost, by protecting the ones that
still stand.

I will stand with them and with the...
