The Solitary Star

The solitary star

Alone in the void,

Surrounded by darkness,

Shines brightly.

Its form

Piercing the darkness,

Constantly,

Endlessly,

Relentlessly.

It burns

Internally

Giving itself up,

To light the way

For others.

Alone in the void,

Surrounded by darkness,

It shines brightly.

It knows its destiny

To endlessly consume

All in its path.

It does what it can

To aid Life,

To protect Life.

The reddish glare it casts

Slices through

the black vacuum of space.

The energy it makes

Powers through space.

Alone in the void,

Surrounded by darkness,

It shines brightly.
