Author Veronica Thornton – Spaced Out


I am but a spec in space

twinkling upon many stars

watching the sunrise and the moon fall

as puffy clouds soar by I wait for my chance to fly

why touch the ground and feel bound

when there’s beauty all around

everything touched with love and the stars shine up above

bringing light to everything in sight

and what some see as a shooting star

started out as a spec in space just trying to go far

leaving a blazing trail behind

that look likes specs of the same kind

we see just a trail of glitter

and if only few specs makes it the others never get bitter

because every little spec has its place

with more than adequate space

and none of them can be replaced.

About the Author

Veronica Thornton a.k.a. Vee was always gifted with the art of verbal and written communication although she was never a big talker yet quite the observer and listener.

Vee currently resides in Cleveland, Ohio is a survivor of domestic violence and mother of two. In her youth she wrote notes to herself and others when she could not verbalize what she was feeling. Many thought her writings to be poetic and inspiring in nature. Her empathetic feelings caused her to keep writing later in life as a way to release all the emotions and questions that were presented to her that otherwise remained nonverbal. While most of her writings remained private it was during her educational pursuits Vee was strongly encouraged to pursue a writing career due to her versatility in topics, styles and ability to articulate her thoughts in a clear, creative yet relatable manner.
