A/N: So. This is the first in a collection of poems! They'll all have their own summaries and the like.

Summary: I dared believe in what other didn't. I did the impossible. I'm lighter; freer.

Rating: K+, I'd say...

Title: STORY


One lonely night

I sat with the stars

Looking at them and

Wondering what it was like

Gazing at Earth from above

Wanting to be there too

To escape all the troubles down here

And so I did the impossible

Made a wish and blew it at a star

Composed a dream and threw it at another

I opened up my heart as the sun rose streaking

The night sky and I started feeling as if it really was

A new day, a new dawn, a new beginning

And I let go, finally

Well, people say the wishes don't come true

But they do

I found my luck, my hope, and my future that day

And I'm hoping my fortune too

So people say that dreams are always too high to reach

But they're not

I spread my wings and flew above them that very same day

And I'm still rising

For some reason people say it's impossible to start anew

But that's wrong

If you don't agree, then believe me on this,

I know when I'm telling the truth and this is one of those times where I am

And I feel so much lighter today

And this is how I learned to believe

How did it all start? I think it was when

My "daddy" called me, I quote,

"A worthless piece of trash"

Those words made me feel all fuzzy inside

Not.

And that was the day I started calling him Father instead

Because I felt different

More grown up

And I lay awake in bed all night

Just thinking

About life and what a disappointment

It had been so far.

Then I spilled out my secrets to the blank faced ceiling

And spewed out my hatred to my unyielding bed side wall

And out of all the people I had known then

They were the quickest to trust and accept me

And I still rely on them

So I did the impossible

Made a wish, wrote it on paper, and threw it in the trash

Composed a dream, jotted it down, soaked it in water, and ripped it up

I opened my heart ten minutes before 6 o'clock

Surprisingly alert for someone who had not slept at all

As I got ready for school, I realized that a weight was off my shoulders

And I let go, finally

Well, people say the wishes don't come true

But they do

I found my luck, my hope, and my future that day

And I'm hoping my fortune too

So people say that dreams are always too high to reach

But they're not

I spread my wings and flew above them that very same day

And I'm still rising

For some reason people say it's impossible to start anew

But that's wrong

If you don't agree, then believe me on this,

I know when I'm telling the truth and this is one of those times where I am

And I feel so much lighter today

That is my story on how

I became a believer

After just one night
