Bottle of Stars
In my moments of solitude,
When I am about to go home,
I always look at the night sky
Wondering if the stars will come out.
Whenever I see them twinkling like diamonds in the midst of a blanket of darkness,
I try to count them and imagine myself collecting those stars like treasures.
Those thoughts give me a glimmer of hope even for a while.
But when they hide behind the dark clouds,
I create my own stars from colorful pieces of paper.
Every piece symbolizes my dream
while every color signifies the emotions in my heart.
And when I’m done,
I put them all inside a bottle.
