I Am Written In The Stars (poem)

Updated on May 17, 2013

Basic Core In My Natal Chart

Sun Sign: Aries
Rising Sign: Gemini
Moon Sign: Cancer
Mercury: Pisces
Venus: Taurus
Mars: Capricorn

According to the stars, I am built upon contradictions
But isn't that how it's always been
Uniquely you, never the same
Our nature always contradicting our behavior

Well, I am according to the stars
Cloaked in a sea of words
like a storm, I'll rip up the earth and water
Watch as they circle in the sky above
and rain down upon you
words that can give way
to patches of sunshine
or make you bleed out tears
from hidden emotions
I keep within

I am the striking of a match
see the flame as it rises
It's just a reminder it is only the beginning
And I will rise above
All that tries to snuff out my flame
I burn
I will burn
Fire is meant to hurt
If you risk coming too close
But it can also be the light
in the dark
I can be the warmth
You need against the cold

Beneath the fiery exterior and core,
my emotions are that of the sea
Bouncing back to and fro
From different swings
of emotions
It brings me back
It brings me down
It brings me to the surface
of things I may have never understood
if I hadn't drowned in this endless, bottomless
sea of my heart

Although, I burn
I exude it
I walk, I love, I do,
I act
with an earthiness
I need to feel the ground beneath my feet
I need to taste, smell, see,
and touch
I need to know
what needs to be
And form whatever path
that needs to be tread
For myself to succeed

      Vkwok, Veronicarain, and Phillydreamer, thanks so much for reading my poem and the wonderful feedback!

      @Phillydreamer -- lol oh yes, I'm boat loads of fun. My mind is that of a bouncy ball in a very confined space. Yea, I think I'm more prone to drive people up the wall. Ah well, what can you do, y'know? Need to be yourself -- learn that, live it, and enjoy it.. :D

      I love astrology. I may be strange, but I believe the positioning of the universe when you're born influences/predicts who you are. Thanks for reading it WL! :)
