#NaPoWriMo Day 13: The Stars Align, Too.

Today’s prompt via napowrimo.net is to write a feel-good ‘everything-will-be-okay’ kinda’ poem.

I wrote this one mainly for myself because it’s something I wish someone would tell me. I thought I might as well do that for myself. I hope you’ll like reading this poem, too!

P.S.: If you’re here, please also go check out my best friends’ poems on Kittu’s Modern Mixtape and Amour Infini. They’re both amazing writers and their works are an absolute treat!

Happy reading! Xx


Thirteen sunsets
Into yet another month,
And I still remain
Unaware of my place
Between these pages I write,
And this world I live in–
I often find myself
Dreading yet another sunrise.

Thirteen days from now,
I could have the answers
I’ve sought after
These past thirteen years,
If only I can tell
Where to begin,
Where to go,
And where my path would take me.

Thirteen years from now,
Perhaps,
I’d still be me,
Still stuck here, wondering,
Or I could be looking back
At where my path took me,
At all the choices made,
And all the memories.

Thirteen hours from now,
I’ll be here, yet again,
Wondering all the beautiful ways
One can bleed in scarlet ink,
Still questioning my place
In my pages–
Life too fleeting
For tomorrow to be sketched in.

Thirteen years ago,
When my journey began in ink,
They told me I wouldn’t be here,
Most poets never do–
It’s a mountain I’ve scaled,
There are several to go,
But every once in years,
All the stars align, too.

And thirteen lives from now,
We’ll cycle back to old things–
Life will go on
The way it’s always been;
Things go around and come back,
Like they always do,
Once in a lifetime,
The stars align, too.
