Among The Stars

Wed, 02/17/2016 - 14:44 -- Maleeka

You are the Earth's most stunning mytery.

Scientists have tried to figure you out.

Under a shade you hide your history,

Nobody seems to know what you're about.


I guess you think you're being humble,

Covering your pain with rays of sunshine.

So no one has to see your heart crumble;

So no one has to know what's on you mind.


I wonder if it ever tires you,

Having to wear that heavy mask all day.

You pretend that the sky is always blue.

Although you are trapped in a planet of grey.


But some nights the vast sky takes you elsewhere,

Among the stars, to a place free of dispair.
