sister friend
moon faced wonder child
star lashed muse
constellations can only copy your shine
in eyes and teeth and mind
you are the best part
you are the climax of life
turned upside down
in a world that is content to just follow along

step by conforming step

leading down a road to no one’s freedom
when it means that you don’t know your ‘fone’
and don’t worry, you’re fine

sister friend
moon faced wonder child
star lashed muse
you made it to today
we must celebrate your spirit
and your truth
your heart beats on
without malice
only light

yesterday, our minds were closed
today, our eyes exposed
tomorrow, our souls transposed into a she
that is not defined on any TV

sister friend

my moon

my star

you made it home

shine on, shine bright

you owe it to you and the wonder child

within
