Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll still land among the stars.


Close your eyes.
See a table.
A table where a boy sits
lost and hungry
where his plate is filled
with nothing at all
but a pit of black emptiness
because the world seems to like
clean plates.
See a flame.
This flame represents
the boy.
it will blow out without
enough oxygen.
Now open your eyes.
Realize that this is happening
in front of you.
But you can change that.
Just imagine.

I did something similar to this in school as an essay but now I decided to put it in poem form.
