Be Cirrus for Once

First adult fracture

Physical or Mental

Shattering realization

you are not invincible


Caution shadows

Limited steps

Few interpose the cycle

Power over the mind




Lightning cracks through

Confidence overcomes

Shattering weighted grey lumps

Six shades of a rainbow


Rewarding transitions

like wiggling a tooth lose

A childhood milestone

Change lies under the pillow


Do yourself a solid


Deliver genuine compliments

Give people the opportunity to surprise you

You look undeniably flawless

glowing in vulnerability


The bottom is an off-white down comforter

Trust the outcome

Appreciate the letdown

Only take necessities


Everything is temporary – permanently tattooed on the mind


– Breelyn Shelkey
