Stars that bruise
Staring at the beautiful sky above one night, your heart is touched by a star that falls in your hands. You stretch your fingers wide and allow its light to run through your veins, only to realize that it's time to send it back to the glittering sky. The light you fed on; for a meaning in your changed life begins to subside. Surreal as it may seem, the reality is what is yours will remain yours. Once you see it's light slip through your hands you will see the bruises it left behind when you grabbed it so tightly. Though it maybe the most painful thing you will ever have to do, it's a pain that heals. Rest your hands for they will always be too small to catch all the pain it has to heal.
You placed the star and your heart in a cage. Love grew in the heart only for the star to transform into a bird, and this bird was not meant to be caged with your vulnerable heart. But as beautiful as it may seem; it is time to let go. Letting go doesn't mean you don't care about someone anymore. It's just realizing that the only person you have control over is yourself. Sometimes we don't want to open the cage our souls lived in because you saw the beauty of a bird's wings shine as they spread to hold you close. You heard the beautiful melody that moved your days from bad to great. You gazed in the eyes of trust, loyalty, hope and happiness.
You may feel secure in the cage you created, but if you never free yourself and venture you will never see beyond what you have seen. And holding on will be the only reason why you don't have something better. Others will tell you that holding on is from the strength you hold within. But there are times when it takes so much more strength to let go.
Today you lost a star, but gained the universe. So cry, suffer, forgive and move on. Let the tears that left your heart dry water the seeds of a brighter future. Tie no weights to your ankles and run to a new and beautiful destiny. Let go and you will find freedom. Let go and thrust your heart into the hands of God and Destiny.
God bless the souls of those who are hurt. Help them grow and heal with the help of Your love.
