In this world I claim my space

Separate from the others beside me

This space however tiny, is mine

This space is where my star shines


I own the patches of my darkness

I own the errors of my life

Some keep me wide awake at night

But I still own them, coz they are mine to fight

I need strength to honor each patch right

I need strength to hold each stitch tight

These dark shades belong to me and are only mine

And till the end, my darkness alone is my sunshine
