I share things

Hopes and dreams are frivolous things
and so are aspirations
but when only a few
are held onto
rare and precious gems

imitations rise up
much more abundant and cheaper
versions of virtues and morals
and least among them
the individual voice of ourselves

I make a wish on a shooting star
and dream away all my miseries
that once and for all my fears escape me
and I am alone
in peace

But like shooting stars
or falling stars
or meteors

my wish becomes your wish
because once you are here
nothing is my own again
