Reaching for the stars

by lunawinx

they tell you to reach for the stars

what they don't tell you is that to miss is to float between them alone

To miss the stars

is to float by, being burned up by their brilliance

Because loosing your dream

is so much worse then simply loosing direction

Its loosing your self

It's loosing the tether that kept you from being lost and alone

You can only hope

That farther out there is another chance to land

that the tether keeping you tied

meant also holding you back

And without that

tether keeping you tied to others

you will become the very sun

I will call this the allegory of reaching to the stars. It is classically posed. The writing was superb. Great job.
