I look up every night, when my mind makes it difficult to sleep and I see billions of dazzling stars just light up the dark and endless skies. I envy them. I envy how beautiful and wonderful they are. I envy how simple their lives are, just to sit up there in the beautiful darkness staring down on all of creation as they hear whispered wishes, guide those who are lost back home and I envy how they beam as a beacon of hope when all gets too dark. So I ask you, make me a star.
Make me a bright and glimmering star as you lift me up into the abyss that is the heavens above us. Let me finally take my place among the others like me, all joined together to make up the universe that is known. I belong up there, shining bright with hope and hearing the whispers as I am wished upon to grant them. Let me take my rightful place, as I am surrounded by all that I love, so I can finally be worth something. I just want to be adored for being who I am, never being forced to change, never having that fear that you will never amount to anything. Let me take my place as I illuminate the skies with the possibilities of new life, fresh starts, adventure and guidance. I will happily welcome anyone who wishes to explore my being and unravel the untold secrets of my soul, to finally understand all of my worth. I am a secret of the universe, just waiting to be discovered. This is what happiness is, finally serving my purpose in the most glorious form there is.
Please, its all I ask for. I don’t want to be in this place you put me in, not anymore. Its cruel and painful, having to endure so many problems that must be dealt with in order to have a normal life. I don’t want to have a normal life, I want my life to be glimmering with eons of stories and adventures to come. I want people to look up and envy me, wishing they had the opportunity to be in my place as I proudly smile down on them, finally happy with who I am, what my life is and my purpose.
So please, please, would you make me a star?
