shine on!

By shywords



I look into sky
and I see it all
And think
how little we are
And how much we worry
even though
We exist so short
And like the stars I wish upon
I wish we could shine on after these
Moments of being
and becoming
That we would cease to worry
And instead shine on like them
Shine on and shine bright
And Shine south
And shine on north
And I whisper to the sky
A praise to stars
As if the darkness surrounding them
is merely cloth
with peepholes
into heaven
As if I speak to a creator
Thanking him or she or even it
For everything yet still to come and already gone
And things that lye beyond
And wait for us
So I will not worry
And try to shine
For we are all destined to become a star
Or even a nebulae afar
