let the daylight in.

open the windows
of your soul
and let the daylight
rush in
let it swallow up
the darkness
and let it
dance in your heart
and watch it
take away the
pain and the hurt
and let it
leave
sparks of hope
in you
open your windows,
open your doors,
open your soul
and let the daylight in

these feet.

Processed with VSCOcam with m3 preset

these feet want to go
where no one else
has gone before.
these feet know
they were made to dance
among the stars,
to leave trails of stardust
in their graceful waltz.
these feet know
they were made for more
than wandering,
than aimless roaming.
these feet know they
have a home,
a belonging.
they know heaven
is in every step they take.
these feet know
it’s a long journey,
but these feet know
where they’re going.

i am not something that fits in a box.

i am not what i do,
i am not what i love,
i am not something
that fits in a box.
i am more than my dreams,
more than my desires,
more than my art,
more than my words,
i am more than the stars,
more than the sky.
i am worth more than
diamonds and gems,
i am worth loving.
i am worthy
and i am not what i do,
i am not what i love,
i am not something
that fits in a box.

stardust and love.

i want to dye my hair
the color of bravery,
and wear bracelets
the color of hope.
and i want to wear sandals
the color of faith,
and i want to wear a necklace
the color of kindness.
and i want to be dressed
in stardust and love,
in freedom and truth,
in grace and redemption,
and i want to be bright,
i want to be light,
i want to be more
than my wildest dreams,
more than who i am.

no te calles. | don’t be silent.

no te calles,
no te engañes,
no te cierres
como flor
y no te niegues
la oportunidad de sentir.
no te calles,
y di las palabras
qué quieren salir de la
desembocadura de tus labios
y no te engañes,
no te digas
que no eres nadie,
que no puedes.
no te cierres
como flor
y sueña
y ríe
y llora
y danza
y canta
y vive pero
no te calles,
no te engañes,
no te cierres
como flor.

tender.

they said i was
too tender
and sweet a flower
to endure this
broken earth,
they said that
hardships would grow
like weeds and would
drown me, wouldn’t let me
breathe,
and i just smiled,
because i know
a broken world
needs healing and
it needs the strength
found in tender flowers
and sweet hearts.
