Lonely Stars

Burning bright

Shedding light

Out into the dark void

 

Noble fire

Lonely desire

Roaring into the silence

 

Why do you blaze

With such ferocious power

And wage war with darkness

 

Billions of years

Billions of stars

Flaming into obscurity

 

But our sun has a purpose

To provide for life on the small blue planet

In order to feed and keep warm intelligent humans

 

How disgusted our sun must be

To expend so much energy

On a harvest consumed to dust
