Theme Week: Innocence – 1

Unquenchable Light

He reached for the stars
but he stretched out too far,
and they burned up his hands,
left him covered with brands.
But he reaches on still,
for he measures his will
as his light,
Matching might
with the stars.

Try Again

Try again.
I know it’s hard
You have been burned,
And now you’re charred
I know how long
The climb has been…
Know you are strong,
And try again.
You may be marked
By failure’s fall,
Don’t let its grip
Hold you enthrall
Though you be struck
By sword and pen,
Raise up your bones
And try again.
No one but you
Can end your run,
Can call your time
Before you’ve won
You are not weighed
By mortal men.
If you still dream,
Then try again.
