“Dwell on the beauty of life. Watch the stars, and see yourself running with them.”
― Marcus Aurelius

 

Tonight I need to run with the stars
and leave this world behind
through work on my body
I’ll work on my soul
and find my orbit.
Free myself of the ties to this earth
Free myself of the daily grind
I’ll burn in the sky eternally
in my timeless race across the heavens
I will live in that stellar cup of bounty
and nevermore know need.
Shine on this night and know joy.
Run with me this night and know abandon.
— G A Rosenberg
