Favorite Quote:
"The most wasted of all days is one without laughter."-e.e. Cummings


A ball
of burning
gas
seen only in
the dark.

You burn
bright
in the dark
night
yet are
unseen in
radiant day.

You are known
by hues of
lively
white,
deep river
blue,
liquid
amber,
and sandy
gold.

From the
universe
you stay and
watch
life
unfold.

I wish upon
your beauty,
for problems
that are
unsolved.
Yet
you
do
nothing.

I wonder,
do I ask
too much?
With your beauty
how can I
blame you
for all the faults?
Should I
instead ask,
what do you
want?

I was having trouble writing this ode for english, but then I finished reading The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. Wow, did it inspired me. I strongly suggest you read that book.
