Heat becomes cool becomes coal- Diversity of a star’s life
Stars are so bright and vibrant like us humans.
Stars are so diverse and unique like us humans.
Sun has solar flares that reach out breaking stillness in the bright cove of the sun.
Bright speckles from thousands of miles away gleaming like a lamp in dark, seeming to talk to us in an unknown language.
Stars have the explosive power of an atom bomb, minerals and dirt rises from the sleeping ground.
Stars implode and absorb everything around them creating silence powerful enough to rival the silence of a graveyard, where the dead roam.
Frightening enough to make us scream, ironic isn’t it?
The supernova that are stars, can’t even compare to humans.
Humans can be so unoticable and invisible that they fade from existence in an instance, stars can take thousands of years just for us to see them fade.
Humans using words to smite their opponents, were louder than a bomb.
The sky is a blank canvas, and humans are painters.
Eyes like lights in the dark, we discover the unfound and meet by stumbling over and falling, but we learn as we fall.
1 becomes 13 becomes 21- Numbers of a human’s life
Oxygen and Carbon and Hydrogen- Elements of a human’s life
Baby becomes teenager becomes adult- Diversity of a human’s life
Humans shine brighter than stars.
Humans progress faster than stars.
Humans are louder than bombs.
