FREE WRITING

2
I’m a girl of glass
delicate
see-through
invisible, really

color me pink
but I’m still just made up of 
idle 
stanzas 

worshipping 
all the wrong 
idols
authors
and dreams

so tell me what it feels like
to escape my glass body
and ascend to the 
higher realms

where our feeble quandaries
have no gravity
and our hearts, too
are lightened 

from the burdens 
of settling for 
mediocrity 
and the mind-numbingness of routine

let them instead
be filled with the brilliance
of light

far beyond the horizons 
above the clouds

where imagination
can be free

and whose expanse
we cannot fathom,

let God alone
judge our worthiness. 

a girl of glass, 
as I live and breath,

will someday

shine 

like a star

among them.
