But we’re all just imperfect recycled stardust,

You’re blind to this sensation that begins
to unfurl 

Of being a constellation

Dressed like a girl

I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

A beautiful and striking piece... it really hit home !
