We may be in the gutter

We may be in the gutter but we are looking at the stars. The man who said that first, I wander was he out each night trailing through the bars.

Did he have fight his way through each and every day and think , then think again about what he was aloud to say.

Was it then as it is now such a long way to look up, did his neck ache like mine was he afraid of getting stuck within the realms of time?.

Did he sit on walls as we did too and make plans and schemes, the moment made we knew we’d never do or full fill our dreams?

We may still be in the gutter we may have still a long way to rise but it was easier then, the hope and stardust had not yet deserted our eyes! Where are the hopes and schemes and dreams.Oh! where have they gone why are they all disappeared and we’re left here with just the memory of how bright they shone.

We may all be in the gutter but some of us are looking at the stars! But we cannot reach them and their memories leave only scars.

    Yes, it is where we look with the eyes of our souls that truly matters!

    What next is what we all have to do in times like this, Willow. We look at the stars and see how far away they are how impossible they are to reach and how useless they are in our current plights – we look up and smile as we look back down at us and realise how close we are to ourselves, how close we are to earth and how easy it is to smile even when the darkest of nights and gloomiest of days descend upon us, and when we smile in the face of it all somewhere a light shines within us, a starlight perhaps because we are all from the stars, so you see they aren’t useless after all, they are us and we are them and so we smile, Willow ❤ xxx

    when we see the sun set, some will see he day end, others will see the night come (~_~) it is always in how we look at things

    Every time I am looking at the stars they inspired me for some reasons it boost my energy and confidence after a few moments with them I feel fine…
