Up On A Star

In a world where fathers didn’t wear their capes

everywhere but home.

Stitched with the force of the blue,

blood of red,

and beliefs of the white.

In a world where mothers did

not live on the line of my doorway,

dragging poorly sewn suitcases,

spilling festering words

and empty memories.

In a world where dreams are closer

than graves,

and voices are taught

to be cherished.

I wish.
