Reach For The Stars

The brightest star in the sky
Is out shone by the dullest light in the street
Our eyes have stopped looking above
And fantasize about what is below.

The closer you are to the star in the sky
The more breathtaking it is
The closer you are to the light in the street
The more of its beauty is lost.

[Hata Bildir]
