Treasure Island

That Star


A Star


She stunts around like she’s all that

But I know it’s all an act

She whips her hair & shows her dazzling smile

But I know it’s fake

She says she’ll never shed a tear

But I know she cries every night

She is…that star, people will always say when she walks by them

But I know she’s not even close

Why do people call her that star you ask?

Isn’t it obvious…a star is bright, like her

All lies, she tells me

A star is dazzling, like her smile, to bad it’s a fake smile

And most of all a star is beautiful, just like her, to bad she doesn’t feel like it

She tells me, she’s tired of pretending to be that star, everyone says she is

But I know she’ll one day be that star she’s meant to be

She will be as bright as a star

She will have that dazzling smile that not even a star can provide


…most of all…


I know she will be & feel beautiful like a star

End

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,

Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
