While admiring the shimmer of the sky.
I wonder if those stars also lie.

Shining brightly in the same spot.
Do they pretend what they are not.

Are they the place where our lost ones reside.
Or just heavenly bodies in space where no one can hide.

There is so much more to them than meets the eye.
Without them there will never be a beautiful night sky.

We only see what’s good on their outside.
We never notice the real struggle scorching their inside.

They burn themselves to charm us with their twinkle.
And we think everything about them is just so simple.

That’s not the end of their story, not at all.
We even wish upon them when they die and fall.

They give us something to learn and something to think about.
If you want to shine like a star then burn yourself inside out.

Death is inevitable but don’t die in vain
Live such a life that thinking about you eases a lonely heart’s pain.
