Carl Sagan was Right

Sometimes
everything sucks
and you feel
so small
and there is nothing
you could’ve done
differently
to change
where you are.

Maybe
the moon
is pulling
on your insides
the wrong way
or Mercury
is in retrograde
or Saturn
is transiting
nowhere good.

But you are 
just as much
star stuff
as they are
and they
are not
the boss of you.
Punch
the moon.
Dropkick
Mercury
into another
solar system.
Steal
Saturn’s rings
and wear them
as bracelets.

Swallow up
the cosmos
and do not say
you are sorry.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
