Said
8.27.16

you are afraid, the night said
you are too small on this earth
you are dust beneath the stars

but no
not so, I said

I have heard the ocean sing
you are alive, it said

I have heard the wind breathe
you are strong, it said

I have heard the leaves laugh
you are growing, they said

you are like us
here on this earth

I am not afraid, I told the shadows
and sang into the darkness
I may be small
but I am an ember
a spark
a firefly
and I will light
up this night
