To reach the stars

If you want to reach the stars,
Be ready;
Be determined;
Be bold;
Be courageous;
Be hardworking;
Be prudent;
Be focused;
Be patient;
Be prayerful;
Be active;
Be smart;
Be clever;
What have I left out?

They may be worse

Why do you look at others
And feel bad,
Because you see them shining like stars?
Do you know what they are going through?
You think they have it all, don’t you?;
Let me tell you;
They may be worse;
You are seeing only one side;
The bright side;
They also have their dark side;
Which you may not see;
But it is there;
And could be darker than yours.
