It feels like an ugly world lately
but the poets are still singing
and the artists are painting a better,
more beautiful world in their heads.

But for what it’s worth,
I went on a run this morning and
there was a tree that smelled like honey,

And the whole neighborhood smells like trees,
smells clean.

For what it’s worth,
I love you.

I hope things are better in your little corner of the universe.

Some nights I feel like you’ve consumed
the moon
and you’re up there,
taking its place,
shining among the stars.


Name: U.S.S. Kelvin
Class: Kelvin-type
Registry: NCC-0514
Operator: Starfleet 

In 2233, the Kelvin was under the command of Captain Richard Robau, while his first officer was Lieutenant Commander George Kirk.

On stardate 2233.04 in the alternate reality, the Federation starship USS Kelvin was attacked by the Romulan mining vessel Narada, 75,000 kilometers from the Federation-Klingon border.

The attack led to a battle during which Captain Robau was murdered, leaving George Kirk in command. The engagement culminated in the Kelvin being evacuated by its crew – comprised of eight hundred people, including Winona Kirk and her newborn son, but with the notable exception of George Kirk, in addition to several other crewmembers who were killed during the Narada’s attack – and the eventual destruction of the vessel. (Memory Alpha)

If I could go back,
I would let go of
the people who have
hurt me,
let go of them faster,
let go of them softer,
leave with grace
and dignity.
Float out the door
like a ghost.

I can’t keep waiting for an apology
that’s never going to come.
Because when it comes down to it,
some people just don’t like
admitting that they were wrong.

Forgiving is a personal decision.

Once you’ve decided to let go,
you’ve done your part.
No explanation is necessary
for why you needed to move on.
