Alight

You will not be understood

by those not of a similar vibration.

It will seem to them

that you are uncaring,

when you don't fulfill their scripts.

But if you cut yourself down,

you will disappear;

so be unapologetic

in your unwavering joy.

Sadness has been aggrandized

by the masses.

If your light burns their eyes,

let them look away, darling.

You are alight:

a torch;

a North star.

Burn for all to see.

Guide those who dare to follow.
