There is such a place, you know
One that transcends time and space
And visions of what you’re supposed to resemble, and the limits placed by
the digits of your immortal age.
I can feel the presence of
it in my bones,
Where the sky is never ending and liberated and the sun and moon
Can openly converse love and exist
Without the rules of superiors
Who like tragic love stories and twisted histories.
Whatever you decide to do, whatever you decide to feel,
There are no restraints
To keep you from the prospects of flying or dreaming,
Or embracing things that you had to let go of in another existence.
There is no fear, no confusion, or awkwardness,
no doubts of not belonging.
You don’t have to try anymore to be a good person,
Because you are one.
You don’t have to struggle to hold on to yourself.
You can breathe and smile openly,
And every smile is so breathtakingly beautiful .
You don’t have to live each day questioning every single telltale of life.
You don’t have to wonder anymore
About why the world can be such a cruel place,
You don’t have to wonder anymore because here such misery doesn’t exist.
You don’t have to live someone else’s life. Because here , you find yourself
Over and over and over again.
