Aiming for the stars

Marianne Sopala
That was the path life gave you.
A restless road,
a dark cold night,
no turning back.
Today you say no, no more,
I won’t let go, I will be strong,
I will aim for the stars,
I will follow my heart, I will open it up,
I will be brave!

And, corageously, you lay all of you in the tree branch cradle and point it to moon…

I will aim for no less than the stars, that’s my home,
in the midst of the lights, in the sky, amoung planets, and galaxies, supernovas…
And you say: I’d look for you in the sky,
somewhere way up high,
where the stars collide
and even a world apart, we will be bind, forever bind…
