I am a Galaxy
White light reaches you
I may look young
but I am old
The time lapse
Stills in space

I am a Galaxy
a swirling unknown entity
of stars and rock
fire and metal
always changing
never fully understood

I am a Galaxy
made of billions
trillions of stars
planets circle
comets sore
and each little piece
is a part of me

I am a Galaxy
large, complex
as one, so hard to understand
but if you learn each speck of dust
that’s what makes the whole

The author's comments:
I wrote this peom because I want to remind people to look at someone or something as a whole but get to know every little bit of them because otherwise you might miss something important about them.
