Treasure Island

Jennifer Zepeda


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

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
