untouchable

"look at that star
isn't it incredible?
it's my favorite...

i've been reaching for it
and no matter how hard i try
and how high i jump
it never seems to be enough

still, i never stop trying -
i'm so desperate to see what
lies beyond it

what would it mean for
my insignificant life
to actually reach up
and grab hold of it?

it is always shining
brighter each day
mocking me as i jump
with all my might

and yet, i'll never
fully realize just how
niave it is to reach out
for it -
the one that will
always be just beyond
my grasp"
