A Ray Of Light Heads For Earth

Go yonder starlight;
Infinity beckons.
Let mortals remain
Forever trapped
Between gravity and grave

Go yonder starlight;
Don’t pierce the blue sky.
Let us earn first
Our light, Our shadows
Our air, Our breaths

Maybe some of need this ray of light to wake up to the reality of life?

It feels incomplete to me; perhaps another verse?

@Vidya: I suppose when I was writing this, I was in no mood to give a redemptive chance or a helping hand. I find the poem complete in the way I intended it to be.
