i promise one day i'll make something beautiful

If there’s anything you’ve taught me, it’s that I shouldn’t have put up with any of this shit for the past few years.

‘I am strong, I am beautiful, I am worthy, and I deserve happiness.’ I tell myself this and I know that one day, I might actually believe it. You make me want to.

I don’t know why I’ve let it get this far, but I know that I am promising myself to hold a higher standard. I think I owe it to myself. I owe it to you

that's the danger of falling for a single star, of making it your 
only source of light
when it fades, you do too.

Inspired by Tia’s beautiful Star Trek poems, especially this one.
