In Search of a Star


The night sky envelopes me as I look for a wishing star.

My life is falling into place with my dreams, and now I am – at last – brave enough to wish for you.

Friends I have, lovers are easy finds.

What I am in need of now is my one of a kind.

The steady yet intense rhythm to complete my imperfectly beautiful lyrics.

Though I can not stop myself from wondering..did I already pass that person by? Are they in my life now and I just can not see them somehow?

Or the worst thought of them all – will they even want me too?

Tears slip through my melancholy eyes and I quickly wipe them away with a stubbornly shaking hand.

For my newfound hearts sake – I hope that none of those reasons are true.

Because now that I know that I am ready for love… I do not want to be without it for much longer.

So here is to looking for a star to wish upon.

Seeing one 'acceptable' troupe for fat black women like me was more than enough to entice me to step up and take a shot! ______________________________________________________________________________________________ After spending hours on stock pile sites and not finding the images of women that she wanted to see on her blog or book covers led K. McCoy to make more of her photography hobby. Besides shooting portraits, street and travel photography, K. McCoy would love to tap more into her creative skills and collaborate with cosplay artists as well as authors looking for their dream book covers.

  1. Wow, so beautiful! I think of stars as eternal. I wrote a song named “My Shining Star.” I feel like when I sing it I am thinking of what you so eloquently wrote. There are song lyrics in you words, for sure. I also know that feeling of wishing for love.
