"Wow, That was awkward"


The stars watch in the night
Silent guardians of people’s dreams
I put my dreams among the stars
Only to find they are now beyond my reach
Why do people say?
“Reach for the stars and you will go far”
Why don’t they just say,
“Put your dreams there because
Dreams are unattainable just like the stars.
But!
Reach with all your might!
Even if you only get to the moon
You still managed to leave this earth.”
Maybe they don’t because the speech is too long,
Or maybe because they let their dreams
Hang on Orion’s belt
And they have not stolen them back
From the giant which guards the night


The author's comments:
I was looking at the stars one night reflecting on dreams and I felt that I would never reach out and touch the stars. That thought led me here.
