Sagittarius in the stars

etched in my arm

a symbol of honesty, integrity, resilience

I’ve often attributed to my successes.

My mother always told me that

I was luck itself since birth

and everyday since.

Car rides would never catch

red lights

events would align just right

if only I was there for it.

Like the shimmer at the top

of our Christmas tree

I always yearned to glow as bright

as the expectations I was

born into.

The archer, the achiever

if the ground ever felt too hard

and the days passing seemed just

far from grasp

anchor yourself in the stars that

predisposed your path

all those years ago

and what is still to come.
