surviving savannah

I know that
wishing on a star
won’t change anything,
but i’ve moved my bed beside my window.
& hope doesn’t always
contain promise,
but I still stay awake
at night looking for something
to place my dreams and wishes on.

I guess what i’m trying to say,
is that my heart isn’t as broken as I once thought it was.
After everything it’s still working and it’s still beating.

I’m still capable of love.
I survived.
