Stars burn

a long way away,

it’s the light we need

to lead us on our way.

Guiding our ships,

illuminate the day,


and die,

and brilliantly create.


Passing through ever single phase.

Caught up in the gravity again.

pulling apart everything we’ve made.

“Hope” is not a word you hear

in the cold darkness of space.


From where we stand

It’s all too big to see,

much less contemplate


Our minds are confined

only to what we believe,

but there’s so much more,

we agree.


Stars shine at night,

it’s how we see.

We are all just possibilities.
