I wonder about the nature of shooting stars
explosions of light that destroy themselves
in order to create beauty
And I wonder
Am I beautiful, too? 
But I imagine I look more like
a flickering neon light
in a dim alley
the only thing illuminated
are my many insecurities
drowning out what little light exists
but you know at least in the dark
you can’t see your own reflection
