Poem Commentary

Just how hard it is to make it in a world so harsh.

No Such Thing as Stars

Out here,
In the city,
There is no such thing
As a star,
Because out here,
In the city,
Nobody takes time
To look that far.
This city is bright
With the silhouettes of
Sky scrapers.
This city is going to drown.
I've got to get away
From here,
But nowadays
Opportunities rarely
Appear,
Because there is no such thing
As a star out here.

lol, country girl, AND antitechnology. love it. Like I said, I'm trying not to think of the inspiration, mainly because it makes me sick. I would like to use this in the CB.

love this poem. it's so true. in this world now built around technology no one takes time to just look at the stars.

In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.

Franz Kafka (1883-1924) Czech writer.
