More reasons to try

 One of this month’s theme stories

Whenever you’re sad and lonely,

Feeling weak and weeping tears will only make you worse.
Look deep into the sky and say, “If there is one reason for me to cry
Then there are millions of stars shining, telling me to try!”

And love is something that will take you far in your dreams.
But always remember your way back.
