Absolute Magnitude

Absolute Magnitude handwritten excerpt

The world woke up today and everything's upside down with lights running red and hearts turning blue. Not through books, nor crayons, but in empty stomachs and grocery shelves do children's fingers rummage through.

I thought it different before, but now it seems it's the day that's dark and full of terrors; while it's in the wee hours at night does one only ever find peace anymore.

That's why to those awake both in the night and day, the ones who carry their minds with one hand but don't forget to carry their heart in the other in these times and always—like stars—we may not see all of you and what you've been through, but with the dark all nature has revealed, we now know the light from all your absolute magnitude.
