If I Were A Shining Star
If I were a star, my passions coud burn
hotter and brighter;
If I were a cloud, I could
she more tears for the world.
If I were a lake, I could reflect
all the beauty around;
If I were a tree, I could
make shelter for all.
But I am only a human,
so all I can do is love
and laugh and try my best,
and hope it's good enough.

The text below is informational in nature only, and

take it upon itself to dictate to a writer how long
their compositions should be. I have numerous poems
that are very short, and this piece of fluff-fill
will appear at the end of each and every one of them.
