snap and it’s over

I have so many pieces in my pockets, sometimes I wonder
what would happen if they – crept out – fell out – leapt out –
for the world to see.
To know what they mean to me.
To believe or not believe, me.

See, you don’t see how:
I’ve collected and I’ve kept them,
hid them and erased them,
seen them pristinely polished.

See, you don’t see how they fit together,
how they all originate from this
one
whole
sheet
of
broken
glass,

shattered into pieces from this blast,
exclusively eclectic secret relics,
hidden
from everyone
the universe
and you.

Look

~Look at where you are~
You’ve made it to this moment.
The bonds that held you yesterday,
are powerless today.

~Look at where you started~
You used to be so far away,
longing for today.
Now it’s here, do not fear,
I love you just the same.

~The fact that you’re alive is a miracle~
Out of all the lands and all the seas,
Centuries and people’s needs,
You’ve been chosen now.
We love you here, today.

~Just stay alive~
I know sometimes it might seem hard,
easier to die.
One day your time will come.
Dying’s not for you, right now.
You’re wanted here, today.

You’re beautiful and powerful,
believe it baby,

~That would be enough~
