A SKY FULL OF DIAMONDS

Malaika King

~~~~~~~~~~~~ 

I wanted a star to hold and call my own

So I climbed the tallest ladder up to the sky

I was surprised to find that stars aren’t stars at all

I hold in my palms a handful of diamonds

Diamonds I picked from the sky

They cut my fingers and make them raw but I don’t care

These diamonds are mine

I reached for the moon, but missed

I reached for the stars, but was wrong

I reached for myself and found

I had a hidden sky

A sky full of Diamonds

~~~~~~~~~~~~
