The Shooting Star

The Shooting Star

A Poem by Rashi Jain

It was once difficult to close my eyes and sleep ,
when I opened the window and stared the night sky,
There was it coming towards Earth, the shooting star that crossed by.
That sudden smile signifies for how alluring can a sight be,
Of all the wonders , what has the power to make wishes true.
Kept in mind the fantasy I murmured a wish so strong
And looked up when it was already gone.
Don't know if it heard my silent words yet
My trust was stronger than doubts
And somehow that power of trust made me believe,
For wishes do come true ,
For I worked with hope to reach what I dreamt and
Just a night after I went to the same scene to express my gratitude
When the same shooting star smiled for building faith in me.

Your writing is mind-blowing! I can't believe this is coming from a young person such as yourself. This poem is not only full of sparkling imagery, but also it tells a beautiful story . . . the reader is transfixed from beginning to end. Many writers use imagery of "wishing on a star" but your treatment of this in story-telling form makes it feel surprising & fresh, showing much original thinking. It's so rare to have a poem express SUSPENSE! I know that exact feeling, the way you expressed it -- maybe the wish caught the star & maybe it didn't, who knows, but I love your optimism . . . this is the foundation of inspirational writing. Very beautifully imagined & stated.

Hahaha honestly for being 16 years old, you're doing fantastic! I loved this poem, it's amazing what a taste of a little bit of hope can do for some people. It gives you something to look forward to, and helps you get through the day to the next. Great work :)
