Ocean Tears, Sun rise

I borrowed tears from the ocean

To make my cheeks salty

I smeared honey on my lips

to keep them from opening

I stole the anchors of the biggest boats

To keep me from floating

Every step I took kept me from moving

but I was more.

I was meant to live for so much more.

No matter how deep I sunk.

No matter how much weight was on me.

The clouds lifted me towards the sun.

I became the sun and fresh air.

I spoke languages for all to understand.

I floated higher and higher.

Nothing can keep me from moving now.
