Star

Star

A Poem by Celeste Lucy Zaveri
"

You're a star!

"

Do you feel like a tiny, loose, weak leaf
Just about to leave the tree, and not come back again?
Do you ever feel so stupid, GRADE F
One blow in the middle, and all of you falls down to ground?
Do you ever feel like you’ve got to cling
But you just scream, and the clings don’t do half of a thing
But the game’s not over until it is
You can return to the biz
You half to sing and chime, just let your heart shine
You’ve gotta be worth so much more than a hundred dimes

My friend you are a star at work
You can fly safely from the birch
Make them all cry, cry, cry
Jealously as you fly, fly, fly
My friend you are a star at work
You’re the cold strangeness, and the hearth
Make them all cry, cry, cry
You won’t let them win the fight, no, no
You aren’t a rotted junk littered to earth
Your mom was right to bring your birth
If they focused on the future’s promises
They’d find the rainbow coming from the storm
It seems like you’re closed out from all those bright doors
But they’re just afraid to hear your loud, strong roar
And you didn’t enter those so you’ll open the perfect one
My friend you are a star at work
You can fly safely from the birch
Make them all cry, cry, cry
Jealously as you fly, fly, fly
My friend you are a star at work
You’re the cold strangeness, and the hearth
Make them all cry, cry, cry
You won’t let them win the fight, no, no
Boom, boom, boom,
Rude, rude, rude
You’ll fly right past the moon
I knew it’d come out of you
You’ll fly right past the moon
You have to sing and chime, just let your heart shine
You’ve gotta be worth so much more than a hundred dimes

My friend you are a star at work
You can fly safely from the birch
Make them all cry, cry, cry
Jealously as you fly, fly, fly
My friend you are a star at work
You’re the cold strangeness, and the hearth
Make them all cry, cry, cry
You won’t let them win the fight, no, no
You’re being free, not being
Rude, rude, rude
You’ll fly right past the moon
Rude, rude, rude
You’ll fly right past the moon
