Since I was a child, I saw magic at the moon,
the planets and the stars
I remember closing my eyes really hard
as I wished for anything that was possible
and I wished for the feeling of being an alien
to disappear once I open my eyes and I am home.
I remember thinking the better I visualized
this wish to no longer feel consumed by my loneliness,
the better the chance of this wish coming true and I am home.
I remember imagining what it’d be like to live
in a future where I felt the people playing soft music
and my family is dancing as they laugh and drink and I am home.
I remember feeling sad that my wishes never came true
but I still found magic in believing in all my wishes anyway
because I know, soon I will love, smile and vanish and I am home.
