BROKEN STARS – Promote Yourself

Shards of stars glisten brightly in noonday sun
pieces of dreams strewn across an abandoned yard
pick each fragment up, turn them over in my hands
these broken dreams of broken men that never mend
careful not to cut the flesh, dispose of  shards in a can
for I will not bleed another mans’ regret
many lessons learned but none greater I have met
when the sun shines brightly, stars still shatter yet
and sometimes Illumination is a lie that must be told
because this house was condemned long ago
-L. M. Mann
