The Most Important Thing - Poem by TP Sage

it's all good.
i really feel that way.
i do.
it only matters what's inside.
the storm may rage
and tear away the pieces
that you see.
but that's not me.
not anymore.
it used to be
when I looked at the moon
i saw an endless possibility.
not anymore.
lately all i see
is the darkness that's surrounding me.
not anymore.
i'm going home.
that's what i need.
i'll be ok.
so please don't cry
for me.
i left you all
the important things.
my hopes
my dreams
my naked soul
i left you who i really am.
and it's all good.
i hope you see
that at the end,
i got to be
who i really am.
it just wasn't enough
to keep me here

so i'm going home.
where the moon is magic
and the darkness
just a frame.
i ask
one thing of you.
please take care
of my soul for me.
it's my most important thing,
and maybe
if it touches you
that will help you be
who you want to be.

and when you look into the dark night sky

i'll be the moon.

and you will see
that i'm still shining

just for you.
