Stars Know When It’s Time to Fall

“I’ll race you to Planet Earth,” one star said.
“Let’s fall together,” the other star answered.

That same night,
the darkest of skies lit up
and the Universe granted the world
a wish or two
or three or four
Maybe even more.
And I have learned from the stars
about the beauty of letting go,
of leaving home,
of chasing nowhere
until crashing and burning
looks nothing like a curse
but a blessing.

I have learned from stardust
that only ashes and ruins
can fill up empty spaces.
Brokenness is not a sin
so fall hard

fall hard
and be the most beautiful you’ve ever been.
