Poetry – Be your own star!

To be a star, you must shine your own light, follow your own path, and don’t worry about the darkness, for that is when the stars shine the brightest.

Napoleon Hill

My Own Star

Many a time, I look at the sky

And wonder how serene the stars look

I wish to reach out, and fly

And trap them, by hook or by crook

But, then, I hear them say from afar

That the stars aren’t for me alone

Frowning, I wished on a shooting star

For a star, that would be my own

I heard a wolf howl aloud,

Standing by the window, I looked around

There it sat, howling at the dark cloud,

Captivating eyes and a body of scar and wound

A look at the wolf, brave and courageous

And I realised my life might have a scar

And might look ever so mysterious

But, now, I know, I can be a star, MY OWN STAR!!
