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
