beauty is inherent
fills every bit of the universe
skies dotted with memories of dying stars
parted lips
blooms of color reaching out from under a crack in cold hard concrete
it begs to be seen
doesn’t settle for the way things are
comes out when least expected
reminds you of days you used to wish you had forgotten but now want back

beauty loves like no other
makes your heart flutter
washes over you in waves
makes you think of cold nights and seemingly endless days

remember when you saw it?
embraced it?
when everything was joy, when you hadn’t lost the will to empathize

you have to

for the sake of this insanely odd planet

you have to promise love and beauty will never just be unattainable concepts

you must be it
become it

until everyone around you finally accepts it as the norm.
