JOSE MURGUIA

Almost Famous.

so close but yet so far,
so bright but not yet a star,
almost famous,
but still nameless.
aldo i know some day
you will know what my name is.

    Nicely done. I often wonder about those who are waiting in the wings, only one step away from stardom which for so many never comes. They are left waiting in the wings.

    I must agree with Eldon Thomas, most poets I know are free verse, which is an art in its self, but I prefer rhyme. I'm not sure if 'aldo' is a name or a misspelling of all though, but it is very nice. It's got a raw sort of feeling to it.

    I'm digging your style dude! I don't meet that many fellow rhyming poets. The majority of poets I interact with are spoken word artists whose poems are mostly prose and I am left feeling out of place. But they are still good. I like your style. Keep it up.

    So bright but not yet a star. Inner brightness is what a star wishes it could have and you got it.

    your name already shines more brightly than
    the many colored tiles glowing in the high plateau
    buildings of the Univ of Mexico
