Reach for the stars

“reach for the stars”
or so the song goes.
but what about those of us
stuck in dark holes
buried underground
under the weight
of all our nightmares?
what about those of us
lost in the muddle
of everyday life
not reaching for anything
except the next fix?
the next great thing?
the rope that will pull us up
so we can at least see the stars
and maybe, one day, reach for them.
