I am the Stars in the Sky

I am the waves in the ocean
I am my past
my family and friends
I am my mistakes
despair and sorrow

I am pebbles on the beach
I am my present
my thoughts and feelings
I am my success
and my knowledge

I am seeds in the ground
and rain in the clouds
I am my future
once lost but now found
I am hope and desire

I am my heart and soul
the molten core of the earth
I am loved and cherished
casting light in the dark
I am the stars in the sky

  1. I like how this poem is constructed. It doesn’t strive for “success:” it achieves effectiveness, and that’s what’s important.

      Thank you so much. Inspiration came to me while driving to the pool this morning, so I sat in the changing room typing it into my phone before I forgot!

        I’ve started carrying pen and paper around with me, but not in my swim bag!
