STARS



Quote of the day:
We choose our joys and sorrows long before we experience them -Kahlil Gibran

STARS.

I
watched
solemnly
as the
stars
disappeared faded
in the
night sky

i remembered
the
stars
in
my own life
but
it was
too late early
for they
were not
there.

  1. That quote is so true. On my interpretation there are so many actions and steps we take in life that set us up for the disappointments we face later on.

    About the poem, I love the juxtaposition of the two stanzas. Side by side, its like they contrast. The fading stars (first stanza) but they were never there in the first place. The crossed out words gave depth to.

    All my personal interpretation, I may be wrong but that's poetry I guess.

  4. the crossing out shows how changing just one bit of our thinking can be all the difference we need....like you are looking on the bright side. by crossin one out, the book remains open ...by knowing to cross those words out, you know when changes need to be made....
