I was in a darkness of my own Within a night I had not known I chose to stumble in my pace With all hope of light misplaced
On my course a twinkle caught my eye A lonely star in the sky above Getting ever brighter as I drew nigh Then did I see the truth thereof It was a myriad in mutiny A constellation that raided the night Luminous in its beauty A radiance which compelled my sight
I was in a darkness of my own Overcome by a light unknown That eased my path in grace And all lost hope replaced
It reclined in the cosmos Calling out to me Seeming within reach almost Then I blurred back to reality A marvel that pulled my soul By more than figure of speech To be part of a whole My flesh could never reach
How daunting a brilliance I longed for though farfetched My heart need travel a distance Fear served only to stretch It held my tarrying gaze For only a moment more Then left me in a daze Stealing that which I adore
I again stumble in my pace Having lost my stars in space Returned to a state I now bemoan I am in a darkness of my own.
"Look at how tragically beautiful the sky is, it's a graveyard of stars" I said
"How can you say so?" He asked while looking at me
"For all the stars that are twinkling and glittering that paints the night sky has long been dead and empty, yet it still shines so bright, it is dead yet alive. It still gives hope and to everyone that finds the meaning of their existence. Even though they are dead they still glimmer in their darkest. Everyone will love you if you are dead just like how they love the stars I think every atom in my body are remnants of the universe, Iron in my blood, Nitrogen in my DNA, Calcium in my bones and Carbon in my soul is who I am, I have stuff in me as old as the universe humming with different verse. I wish I am a star wrapped in a skin the light you are all seeking has always been within." I answered
It's no wonder that loud thoughts make A wind-kissed night and The quiet of the Stars and the moon, Seem Like such great company. I'll forever be grateful that the Moon landed in our Sky, Because the night Would be so much darker Without it's little Blue sun to remind us That it hasn't Left. It just went down for a nap.
