Sometimes I feel like a firefly.
Carefree, wild....set apart from all other creatures of the night.
My bright light defeats the surrounding darkness and I feel powerful.
Every night I blend in seamlessly watching the flickering street lights, city lights and of course the stars.
It makes me feel like I’m not alone on this earth. I feel the warmth of the night... The moonlight seeps through my skin and I know that I’m blessed.
But ... To be a firefly at day...
I can assure you nothing feels more lonely and hopeless.
You become invisible under the beautiful rays of sunshine.
I swear...if you don’t look close enough you’d think I was never here.
It’s funny how my magnificence is stripped away and I am once again all alone Barely noticeable in a room full of people.
That’s why I am forced to believe that even mother nature kinda...sorta loves me for she only allows me to shine in the presence of her darkness
