Day 224 – North Star

Leave a comment

I don’t know how many times I’m going to say it, but please reach for the stars.
They’re always free for the taking – I’m telling you, they’re ours.
They may often seem out of grasp, so distant and beyond your sight.
But honestly you’ve got to try – and push on with all your might.

I know the sun sets and leaves us be, but the darkness is not forever.
For the dawn does arrive again – and sheds more light on your endeavor.
See, it is written that you are to dream, and swim in seas of sweet elation.
So move forward, and remember – it’s the journey, not the destination.

Though the path appears treacherous, it’s not impossible to overcome.
For this life is never easy – so don’t give up, do not succumb.
You must recall what you are fighting for, use your values to drive you forth.
You already know the way – so follow your star and just head north.
