The Stars Above My Roof

the thought of the vastness
the expanse of space
makes me question my existence
the part i play in this place,
it brings me face to face
with every thought that i hold dear
from everytime that i have smiled
to everytime ive shed a tear,
gazing at the stars
on a clear and cloudless night
makes me ask if i could shine
if i fought with all my might,
do i have a purpose
on this cold and lonely earth?
am i more than just a man?
really, what's it worth?
could life have other meaning
than to make it day by day
could my answers be out there?
i guess for now they have to stay
but not knowing will not cease
this prodding for the truth
ill just gaze in awe and wonder
at the stars above my roof.
