Validated

The search for affirmation:
To peer into the soul,
And feel, without some other there,
It never could be whole —

Through calories and cue cards,
In pictures held ideal,
In people that she’s tried to be
Without it being real —

And oh, the long vexation
And emptiness she got:
Like every heart that tries to be
Exactly what it’s not —

It’s not a cosmic thing, about
Some wishing on a star:
The moon is yours, the day you learn
To love the girl

You are
