lullaby to ugly duckling souls

think of me as your solitude
where you escape to turn into the night
you don’t want things to leave there, ever
don’t worry –
i’ll take care of them, keep those
vulnerabilities out of sight
i’ll fold the moon into paper cranes
they’ll take flight but fall gently into your hands
i’ll draw in some stars,
tie them all together
let the wind fly them higher than kites
over lands where you believe
you have no strength to stand
don’t worry –
i’ll take care of them, even
during times when you are right and alright
yet you still feel wrong or don’t belong
