Like A Shooting Star

I want to bury myself in the dirt and grow just as flowers do because even after they've been destroyed they leave seeds in their wake to replace what they lost. I want to soak in the sun's light, take every part of it for myself so at night, when it's dark, I don't collapse and fall to the earth like a shooting star. I want to be so full of life that no one ever questions if there was a moment where all I had were broken pieces and empty feelings.

  3. This is so uniquely beautiful, i never thought of a shooting star as more than a beautiful temporary light to wish on and now i see it as that wonderful last line of yours ��
