Looking at the stars

Oscar we won’t let you down
As we trail our lives
Through grimy, dusty streets
All our past mistakes and sins
Crushed beneath our feet
Knocking on doors of riches
That all the world debars
We’ll be looking at the stars

Oscar we will hold up high
Your aspirations and your words
Find solace in such poetry
As angels yet may fall to hear
And as the cold is drawing near
Riding in the devil’s car
We’ll be looking at the stars

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.

  1. Love Oscar Wilde. We also have an Osprey in the neighborhood we named Oscar because of his ability to soar.
