We were all stars once--
Every one of us,
Every one of our atoms
From the suns and stars above.
Truly, we were all star children,
Born wondering and questioning curiously,
With little flecks of light and life in our eyes
Letting our lights lead us on epic journeys
Where we played and learned
And found our ways.
So when was it that the light left us?
When was it that our journeys didn't seem important anymore,
And our learning was put on hold indefinitely,
Until the end of forever,
Because other commitments were put in our way?
The light leaves all of us eventually.
It's why no star child survives past childhood.
