Stay Bright

“Dearest one,
this façade
you’ve built
doesn’t fool me.”

I see the pain in your heart, the cracks in your soul. I see the light dimming in your eyes, while the rest of the world is too blind to see the truth. If I could count your tears and replace every one with something beautiful, would you see how much this world needs your light?

  1. “If I could count your tears and replace every one with something beautiful, would you see how much this world needs your light?” I love this line so much. It’s so beautiful and feels like a hug (if that makes sense).
