Starburst

Tune me in to the underlying source

Plant me beneath that burst of sunlight

Take me from the shadows of uncertainty

Into the sweet relief of unquestionable right.

Pull me away from the fear of failure

Always clinging to my timid, doubtful mind

Show me what it means for me to be enough

Replace my inner critic with words that are kind.

Open up the windows of this protective prison

Let light pour in to this diminished space,

Like a starburst across a canvas of ink

Help me find belonging in a benevolent face
