We look for solace

In the darkness of our rooms

The fresh air

It chokes us

The bright lights

They blind us

But is it solace

Or is it escape

Or rather shelter

We look for stars

In the night skies

But they are lost

Just like our blaze

But we forget

The greatest star

Gives the day its glow

So step out

And rekindle

For the four walls

Cannot contain your flame

And burn

Until you just cannot .

- Sarah Ali
