Things that are never mine

I see a firefly in my room,
twinkle, twinkle little firefly,
can you stay with me tonight?

There is a firefly in my room
I wanna catch it with my hands
so it stays giving me light.

A twinkling firefly is inside my hands,
I can feel its wing beat against my palms,
I see the shimmering light of its life.

A fading twinkle is inside my hands,
I want you with me, but you are gonna die,
so I open my hands and let you fly.

A human being trying to heal and found her own voice. A self-love journey.
