All Boys are Superstars

All Boys are Superstars


My three adult sons,  ages 18, 21 and 22, experienced challenges and triumphs as they grew into young men, but fellow Canadian Justin Bieber became a man with the eyes of the world watching and reporting on his every move.  This week he apologized for his actions of the past year on The Ellen Degeneres show, and I wrote this poem for him.

Boy Star

By: Ann Hoy

All boys are stars
In the stellar nursery
Of the night sky
Soothing lullabies of light,
The North Star is bright

You were fourteen
When ascending the sun
Your childhood done
Adolescent superstar
Pushed up way too far

You could not shine
Without the darkness of night
And your boy light
Flashed into a mature man
In the frying pan
