I want to be timeless by Elena Lucia Perez


free to move

between earth and sky, playing


among the stars,

never once considering the positions


of the sun and moon in relation

to my to-do list.


Free to read as long as I wish

without getting sleepy,


lounge on the beach

or among the trees and birds,


talking to the flowers.

I want to create


a safe place

for anyone who has ever felt lonely


or stupid or lost or afraid

and show them what it’s like to feel accepted


and seen and heard and important.

I’ll teach them to shine


like supernovas, bright for eons

after they’ve exploded.
