REPOST: Not in the Stars

REPOST: Not in the Stars

How can a glance up at the sky
give you your answers; dispel any lie?

Can one single notice of a feeling that’s right
bring life-long fulfillment, bring more than one night?

Will one more blink of the eyes fixed on some celestial grace
bring a meaningful answer to your inquisitive face?

How many cold stares into the ice of her heart
must the universe show you before you’re ripped totally apart?

How small must you feel to park your star rocket
and leave the heavens to God and feel in your pocket

the keys that you hold to your joy, here, on earth?
Instead of what you’ve found: the turmoil, the dearth

of a future that simply does not exist in the stars
while battered by life, embarrassed by scars -

you covertly plan on mastering the universal expanse
submitting to something you thought you saw in one glance.

How many How comes?, Why nots? and angry How fars?
will it take for you to see it was not in the stars?
