Favorite Quote:
"If life gives you dirt, grow flowers." - I read it on a post it in the movie "The Fault in Our Stars"

I stared up at the sky;
Empty, dark vastness.
Just like every night,
I saw nothing tonight.
Each night, I looked,
I looked for inspiration
Each night, I found nothing.
All I saw were the stars and moon.
I tried the next night
And the night after that,
I kept on trying
I tried and I tried.
After he left, I tried again.
And tonight, I did not see inspiration.
I saw beauty.
Beauty in the stars and New Moon.
And that my friend, was all I needed to see.

The author's comments:

The "he" part in this piece is left open for the reader's inference. This poem is written to help the reader imaigne what it would be like for a certain worry to leave.

I imagined my "certain worry" dissipating and this is what I felt. I hope anyone who reads this feels the same.
