Shooting Star
Have you ever hitched yourself
To a shooting star
Only to find that person was really
A comet flying through space
A cold solid chunk of ice and rock
With no life of its own
Living off the shinning reflection
Of other stars around them
Find yourself a star
Burning brightly
Full of passion and fire
Warm caring light for all
Better yet
Be that shining star

  1. Dwight, I love your metaphor of the shining star and the comet ๐Ÿ™‚ Sadly, sometimes in life, we find ourselves hijacked by a comet that lives off of our brilliance. Worse yet when that person holds a powerful position.
    Thanks for sharing your light through your poetry.
