About the Poem

This poem is about the way I sometimes feel that my life is like a star, both the kind that seem almost eternal and the other kind - the shooting star that lasts but a brief moment in time.

Ashes On The Ground

My life is like a million stars
that scatter through the sky,
and from my place in outer space
I watch the world go by.

At other times I'm twinkling sure,
a star to lead the way,
and in the night a guiding light
that led you home today.

At other times I'm blazing fast
and race without a sound,
until you see the star in me
in ashes on the ground.
