our skin may be bound to this earth,
but our soul within is infinite.
the stars are ours to explore,
once we finally shed this earthly skin.
so do not mourn when i take my final breath.
i am not this set of lungs
nor am i these heartbeats.
that grave will only hold the skin
that was once my imprisonment.
so do not mourn.
instead, look up always and know
that my soul is amongst the stars.
and that i am finally free.
