Whether you see it or not,
It's always on my fingernails,
And it never goes away
It reminds me that no matter what,
Your inspiration for others,
Will always stain this earth
Just like how nail polish,
Stains on your clothes sometimes,
And it doesn't matter how hard you try,
Because it always stays with you in the end
It's like little photos,
On your nails and,
It takes my breath away,
Every time I see them on my nails,
And it takes my breathe away,
Every time they gloss over
It'll always be with me,
No matter where I go,
A little kite of memories,
Will always fly with me
So Thank you for the inspiration
Thank you for the nail polish
each scar, a memory of a failure or misfortune.
Each day so variable,
each day, a reminder to my mother's failed abortion.
Each word unheard,
each word, a failed attempt at reaching out.
Each minute so lonely,
each minute, a torturous new thought to mull about.
Every scar unchanging,
each scar a beautiful imperfection from my history.
Every day the same,
each new day revealing it's untold mystery.
Every word significant,
each word, a thought so precious to my heart.
Every minute a chance,
each minute a reason to move on and find a new start.
