We are stars.
When we were young, we were told so.
They dazzle and twinkle from far away places.
They can be seen from millions of miles away.
A giant ball of energy, gas, and powerful light…
But the thing with stars is,
they eventually burn themselves to death.
Fires don’t need physical contact to start,
just bend the light the right way and refract it.
The built up energy will cause us to implode bringing
and eventually a black hole of darkness.
A suicidal super nova.
Refract it the right way and there’s an opportunity to change.
Our twinkle and shine will last a little longer as long as the energy can be radiated outward, instead of inside.
Forever shining bright.
