Day 261 – Wishing stars


Does anyone else besides me still believes in fairy tales? Do you still look at the sky and wonder if you will ever find your wishing star? And even if do, do you think that star will take a chance on you?

Scientifically, all said above is just a pile of bullshit, but my soul advises me not to trust science and go with the Santa Claus option. 🙂 I have wished for many things over the years, some bad, some very bad, some awesome and some at least interesting; I got most of my wishes to come true. It turned out some of them were not exactly what I would have wanted and made me understand better the saying: Be careful what you wish for, it might come true! Every year my bag full of wishes got emptier and emptier, because in time I realized how childish and impossible some of my dreams were. From the thousands and later hundred, crowded in that tiny space, all that’s left now are a few of them and those few I must say are not an easy task to complete. I understood in time that you need to work hard from your wishes to come true; it’s not enough just to wish upon a wishing star.

But still, sometimes, I wish upon a wishing star. It’s always the same wish, the same dream, the same agony that tortures my every day. There are weeks or days when I can touch it with my fingertips; those are the happiest and most miserable days of my life. Today I am just dreaming, waiting for the shadows of the night to stroll down, waiting for my star to come out. And when it does, I will be there, by the window, face up, eyes closed, fingers crossed, wishing…wishing…wishing…
