Stars…

Here, we have an essay, written, in poetry form, translated…

  1.  

As I’d lifted open the ceiling, a small patch of starry skies fell down, a few twinkling stars became fish without water, bounced around on the floors.

You hurriedly, collected that scattered around night, placed it in the wash basin, and those dying stars, came back, to life once more, and, as you turned off the light switch, they all started, glowing again.

So, something may seem like dying, but, if you give it what it was lacking, and in need of, then, it might well be, “regenerated”, back to life again.

All the Stars that Got Adopted Had Their Ears Clipped, Like Having that Ticket Punched, Losing a Corner of its, Light

The Stars Were Named, Some Were Called “Lucky”, Some, “Happy”; the Others that Were Abandoned, Thrown, into the Oceans, No More Reasons, for Them, to Glow

How being abandoned hurt, it can turn those, originally bright and shiny stars in the skies, twinkling, to darkness, in almost, an instant…

The Star Loving Groups Advocated, “Do Adopt, Rather, than Catch!”

Those Stars Still in the Halfway Houses, are Fearful of the Dark, Some are Even, More Fearful of Man, Shivered Away, in the Corners of the Nights, Becoming a Universe, All Their, Own.

Like what you would encounter, in an animal shelter, or those, orphanages, with too many lives there, cramped up too tight, bad living conditions, and they all longed, desperately, for a permanent home, with the love, and care they deserved, and yet still, NOT all would have the luck.

and we also have, children in orphanages, waiting for a loving home

You Can’t Help, But Lifted Off that Roof of Yours, and All of a Sudden

You Were, Drowned, in the, Ocean of, Stars.  You’d, Become One Too, Turned Your Belly Over, Begging for that Belly-Rub from Your Own, Shadow, and You’d, Fallen, into, the Deep, Dark, Abyss Then

The Stars are Coming on Now, Causing the Night to, Turn into Day, Eating Up, Everybody’s, Dreams

And so, this showed, how the unclaimed children in orphanages, and those unadopted dogs and cats, along with other animals longed for shows of affection from the society, and sometimes, when we see the stories of orphans, or stray animals, we may feel, “oh, how very sad”, but that, was that, we don’t do ANYTHING, to help out, maybe because, we can’t, after all, we can all each, only, take on, so much in our own, separate, lives.

A Child, Waiting for Home

A child, sitting outside the group home, looks toward the road, what’s s/he waiting for, an adult asks.  “Home”, the child replies.

A child, waiting for home, and yet, how many of them actually DO get a good home, to grow up safe and sound in?  And, what of those early years of being abandoned, doesn’t that make them scarred for life already?  And, who ELSE would want someone who’s been “damaged” (for the lack of a better word)?

A child, waiting for home, s/he will keep on waiting, until s/he turns eighteen, and gets “released” back into the “wild”, and, from there, how s/he develops?  Well, it’s entirely UP to fate to make the calls here.

A child, waiting for home, how is this possible?  Aren’t ALL children born in a home?  A child, waiting for home, because mama and daddy are going through a rough time, and, they simply can’t afford to keep her/him, and so, s/he got bounced around, with absolutely NO sense of security, and, how do you think this kid will grow up?
