to catch a star

moving on

can be so hard

gripping tightly 

afraid 

of the fall

only to find

opening the hands

stops rope burn

maybe we are tight rope walkers

and never knew our lineage

maybe we are trapeze artists 

grabbing the next bar

maybe we free fall

into the great unknown

to catch a star 

with our open hands
