Star

Have you ever wished upon a star
Looked in the depth of the dark
Sky and saw one waving at you
As it jumped for your attention
It made itself seem larger than life
With a jealousy too high to conceal
It lit up the world for you
Without consulting your feelings
It took a place in your mind--- made you ponder
Why you never appreciated the darkness
Instead of wishing it away
It showed you that light can only be itself
When there is darkness when the weight of our lives
Seems to cloud our minds
Leaving no room for positivity that is when light is needed
Shooting stars shoot themselves
Across the dark skies of those
Searching for hope

Someone somewhere has searched the sky for hope
Their dark days no longer exist
