Every night I look to the stars above
Just barely seeing past metal bars
Now consumed by rust
I see one that sings it’s beauty to me.
And it lights a beautiful fire within me
But it’s a reverse shooting star
Shrinking below the very size of an atom
Moving farther than even the universe sees
As the wishes I shoot towards it
But it entices me night after night.
When I look up to it
I feel my feet rise as it floats away
I can’t stop myself from reaching towards it
Like a chain inevitably connects the two of us.
And tonight feels like a night like no other
Because I grab that chain of hope
And climb higher than ever before
To break the the bars that imprison me
That try to contain me
And reach for my justice star.
