Quintus Ennius – “…We All Gaze At The Stars.”

In a starlit night,
with no distractions in sight,
we all gaze at the stars
in the morning after the night,


most wake up,
and look up to their models, their stars;
copying everything their stars do; things they do right
and also copying their mistakes, forgetting where to draw the line;


Why? Because we forget that in each of us,
there’s a drop of genius;
that we can be our stars and to others, be a torch;


it takes only self belief
and the burning desire not to quit till you win.

“No one regards what is before his feet; we all gaze at the stars.” – Quintus Ennius
