nobody told me

March 21, 2013
the more i think about it,
the more i realize that stars are everywhere:
wishing upon a star
star student, first in the class
shoot for the moon, fall amongst the stars

i was told that friends were like stars as well –
sometimes hidden, but always there.
nobody told me that stars were made of fire;
they would always be there, just out of reach.
