Poetry – A Message

A Message

I have just received a message

From a star

Two million light years away.

It said

Shine.

I took it personally.

I thought

It was a sign.

It is no good hiding ourselves away. We only get so many chances. One life is all we have.

The worst that can happen is we fail.

I’m getting good at that.

I have plenty of practice.
