The next time someone asks who you are,
Tell them you are a planet
Because the word “planet” means “wanderer” in Greek

You are made of dreams and stardust,
Every bit of you—every bit in you—is meant to occupy the universe
And nothing about you is misguided–not passion, not sadness, not heartbreaks

Tell them your middle name is Why
That you were raised to ask questions
And to look at everything with wonder

And when people say that you are lost, tell them that you are not
That you are guided by a stronger force
Exploring your own orbit, and finding your rhythm
