Fallen Star - Poem by M.J. Henderson

We look at the night sky and say,
‘Look, it’s a shooting star,
Make a wish’.
When in fact it’s a falling star.
So why wish for something,
That is happy when,
It is actually sad?
Why make happiness out of a fallen star?
Are we really that sad?

    I believe seeing a falling star isn't an everyday occurence...so it is good to make a wish...maybe I will start making a wish on a rainbow also.... :) (Report) Reply

    Interesting, maybe we are. It's better to make something happen yourself, than make a wish, though. Great poetry, very thought provoking. (Report) Reply
