Shooting Star

What an enigma you are
You run like a shooting star
Not worthy to break those walls
So resolute in your thoughts
Not ready to fall
Play the music ride the wave
Don't let it make you a slave

Can't hold you shooting star
What an enigma you are
Put a smile on that face
You could be so much more
It's not just a race
Let them see
your melody
Prove yourself to the world
Life experience will open your eyes
Your heart and your mind
Take a chance, don't be scared
Don't be blind
Be bare

              Well written with a great message. Love that last line "be bare", these two words say so much but are so hard to live up to. It takes a lot of courage to let others see you as you are. But are we not doing that on this site by sharing our poems?

              • Adri

                Yes, we are being bare here!!! Thank you for the compliments!!!🦋🦋🦋
