Singing A Lullaby
Poetry By, J. M. Lilin
He has been making his way across a tightrope of doubt.
Wishing for the knowledge of who he was born to be.
Lonely as if all those meant for him were lost in a drought.
He became less hopeful with each passing friendship search in the city.
Books of fairy tales giving him false dreams.
His own imagination leading him away from the reality of truth.
His own nightmares taking him beneath a blanket of screams.
Unsure of himself and his future even through his youth.
So, it was that night he decided to change his own path.
Unlocking his window and stepping into the sky.
Taking on his demons in the midnight wrath.
Until he was at ease enough that he could hear the stars singing a lullaby.
