Night Sky

Sitting by the window staring at the lonely night sky,
Looking to the heavens to show me a bright light,
Looking for peace in the stars and the moon,
Looking for peace above that may descend soon.
But i struggle in my heart to believe that truth,
The violence of the world will never
prove anything true.
As i look to the night sky, wishing for a nice life,
With the hope that i could fly high, and maybe find a physical miracle with my eyes.
Dreams capture us in thoughts we desire,
Our hearts believe these fantasies but they burn like fire,
Chasing an illusion; something we can never touch,
So why do we insist to reach so much?
Looking at the night sky i realize, with my real eyes that we only ever believed in real lies.
We will never reach a point where we could feel nice, it's time to grasp our feared lives.
Sit with me and see what i see in the night sky,
Hope still remains in my heart showing me a bright light.
