City

City,
Your stars sparkle and shine
on the red carpet,
in powerful offices,
behind gated mansions.
How quickly their
shine fades and falters;
falling,
no longer worthy
to look up to.

Here,
Our stars glitter and shine
for millions of years
they burn, 
glorious
and lovely 
to look upon.
We cast our wishes
and prayers 
at them,
generation 
after
generation
and still they
give their light.
I'm afraid I would 
miss them in the midst
of all your towers.

-Nichelle Lei
