Spark in the Night

Know that you can achieve great things.
From the stars you were born--a billion years in the making--to the stars you shall return.
So this is the blink of your extraordinary existence.
So shine and soar like a spark in the night.

I appreciate it, Brenda :)

It's a core belief of mine that anyone can achieve great accomplishments no matter their age or environment. What is defined as "great" is simply in the mind of the achiever.

Steven (tbones) | 408 comments It's hard for me to decide which is my favorite of yours Vincent, if you keep coming out with new favorites for me :o) I really like this one and think it would work great as an opening or closing narrative in a movie somehow.

Thanks, Steven! Perhaps someday I'll work one of these into a larger story/book.

I hope you're doing well. :)

Steven (tbones) | 408 comments Wow, yeah that would be an awesome idea. Maybe you could do something like that one guy Charles Buchowski (I think) He has books out full of poems but some are like short stories and all the stories in a weird way make a whole story. Very cool stuff.
