like the sun we may seem great and like the sun we may know we’re not. the sun knows that she is one of the smallest red giants in the universe and she knows to become great she must take up more space. engulf those near into her flames to become bigger, brighter. and we sometimes feel this, too. that we must take up more space to become bigger, brighter. until like the sun we will become so big that we burst, becoming small again. we are like the stars, especially the great ones.
