you are a star of pulsing light;
you tell me you cannot fight, and
i have to think before i reply -

my dear, you are a star
so live like one, and go out
in glory. be not ashamed that
you've flickered or faltered. be
not ashamed that you've had
moments of questions in sheer darkness. -

be as a supernova; fly!
fly to the center of the universe,
crescendo and spark!

it is okay to be afraid,
and it is okay to try to be brave.
