you are a phoenix


whatever it is, don't give up.

Darling, don't give up on you. You are so, so beautiful. Love that skin, love those eyes. They make you, you. Don't say sorry, don't say "maybe it's lame" dreams are never lame. Dreams are your spirit pushing past your skin and breaking out into our atmosphere.

You, darling. You are a shooting star. Light up our sky, don't hide behind that mask, jaded by the world when they tried to burn you. Yes, maybe they burned you. But you are a phoenix, darling-- rising from the flames, lifting ash wings to the harsh blue sky, making your way to the cliff's edge; jump. Fly, darling. Soar. Trust those wings, burning with the light of a thousand suns. Trust you. Be who you are, who you were born to be.

Be freckles and messy hair, tall or short, acne or birthmarks, tough, shy, whoever-- be beautiful, beautiful you. You live inside there, young one. I see you, down there. That warrior. Let it break surface-- let it overthrow you. Live out loud. Blow us up, darling. He's with you. He's been there always. He is with you always.

He made that pretty face; he sculpted that pronounced nose and those rose petal lips. He brushed that hair back and kissed the back of your neck. He painted that skin, dotted it expertly with freckles, crafted each finger and nail like a Van Gogh masterpiece. You're like a museum piece, running around with air in your lungs, and a smile aching to get out of those teeth.

Talk to Him. Not like how they tell you, but in your own way. Call Him Papa, call him Love, call him Beautiful. Breathe him in, let him out. He lives in you, inhales and exhales through you. He's with you when you leave the ledge. He's the light in your hair-- the light in your soul. He sees you and his heart skips a beat. He sees you and his breath is taken away.

So darling, you love that body of yours, and that mind and that soul. It's all one thing, a cosmic drink of star trails, leaking through our atmosphere. You are the jumper, you are the hawk punching a hole through the ceiling of the sky; flying higher.
