a child's secrets (triolet challenge)

As a child, I was drawn to the sky 

The moon soothed my secrets 

The sun exposed me to the harder parts of life 

As a child, I was drawn to the sky 

I would try to stare at that blistering sun till I thought I was blind

I accepted the tears my mother said were signs of weakness

As a child, I was drawn to the sky

The moon soothed my secrets
