Live a Life

Let me live a life.

Hold not my freedom;

I wish to fly away,

Away into the darkness.

You will see me glow;

My light minuscule

But, a lifetime for me.

Let me be….

Alas! she left the firefly;

A rare occurrence in her garden,

To be itself not hers…

Alone;

That damp night when the world slept

She tried to conquer her fears

Of thunder and lightning

To let her live a life.
