My instinct is kicking in and all I can do is write;
Before I was just shouting into the darkness, but now I can illuminate the skies, just like a shooting star at night.
Don’t you dare try to tell me that I cannot make it, these words and verses can take me wherever I want to go;
I may not be perfect, but at least I have the courage to put my life and poetry out on show.
When I close my eyes this pen can write its own verses, which I then copyright as mine;
These words can soar up high just like a shooting star, spelling out the phrase “it is you’re time to shine”.
Haters doubt my odds of being a success, they try to turn my happiness into yet another negative grief;
But I know I will succeed in life, I have my faith, my hope and an unbreakable belief.
Whatever we do in life we all have a dream that we are each trying to live and save;
These words will still be sealed in ink for an eternity, giving the effect that I am writing this letter from beyond the grave.
I write in a lonely place, eyes closed so nobody can ever say you only ever made it because of me;
Fate will push you in the right direction in life, but it’s only you who can chase you’re destiny.
I have already proved all of my doubters wrong, secretly nobody ever thought I would make it this far;
I blow a kiss towards the skies, as I watch this letter flash across the heavens onboard my shooting star.
