Trying for the Stars

I spent my life reaching
for what every one said
was unattainable.
Always trying
Always striving
for just that little bit more.
“What a waste
of a perfectly good life,”
they would say.
With their feet planted
on the ground
and all their heads
turned down,
they were frozen in place.
As for me,
I kept reaching
and for a moment
I touched the stars.

Prompt: Touching Stars
