The Stars

When I was young I used to live in the country and at night you could see endless stars in the sky.  Now I am grown up and live in the city where you are lucky to see any at all.

  I always feel something when I look up at the night sky.  Sometimes excited if I see a shooting star.  Sometimes interested in something I don't understand.  Sometimes sad I can't see anything at all.

  The sky at night is like a mirror.  It makes you look small and insignificant.  It also makes the things you value in life seem infinitely important.

  I think everyone should take the time to look now and again.
