A FALLING STAR

A FALLING STAR

A falling star
did come to earth
so beaten at her game

the game of hope
did start to disperse
yet seen as something lame

the trials and errors
brought hate not love
upon the brow of blame

amusing maze
of crazy days
did bring her to her shame

until she laid
her sorrows out
found troubles were in all

a wanton waif
mixed up in fate
was shoved beyond her call

yet hope did lead
the torch she held
to share stories untold

oh why such games
to find one's way
when one can be so bold

it takes the games
of loves and hates
wake up upon life's wheel

a falling star
did rise again
believe we can be real

oh hope is there
a trusting friend
until we grow with ease

oh falling star
you came to help
shed light we can be free
