a child of the universe sat for a moment,
then looked up at the sky.
all of the pain from being a human flooded her heart,
rain poured from her eyes.
she thought back to the whispering moments,
trusting in those that she loved.
she thought back to the glimmering moments,
shining on those that she loves.
“the condition of hurt is to make you grow,”
said a voice inside her mind.
“but growing is tough” she replied real low,
“yes, but you must, it’s time.”
she got up and walked from one tree to the next,
sand pushing between her toes.
within this short time, her power was shown,
a scary but meaningful know.
“there’s no going back” she confirmed to herself,
sweat dripped from her tired brow.
a demon crossed her sandy path,
and her heart still loved somehow.
