The Star You Left Behind

Now you are more free
Than you really want to be.
No one holds you in place,
And you're drifting off in space.
And the stars are all you see-
Far away as they can be.
And the star you left behind
Gets dimmer all the time.
And the problems that you made
eventually will fade.
And the work that you have done
Seems better when you're gone.
Far away from everything,
Far away from everywhere
No one hears you sing,
No one knows you care.
