Night

Reclined beneath a vast dark sky

I began to ask my questions to the night.

I begged for a revelation

And asked my heart to be spared this time;

I made promises to the stars and asked them for guidance

My heart beating in turmoil inside

Aching as it bent this way and that

Until suddenly and gently,

As if the night embraced me and whispered in my ear

It became clear

That all my tears and cries were given in vain

Because I’m healthy and loved

and my biggest concern is finding my life’s passion;

Fulfilling my still unknown destiny.

I felt silly complaining to the stars

So I thanked God for the life I have

I dried my tears

Read your goodnight text

And stood up to sleep in my warm queen size bed.
