Poem #8: Starlight


The compelling force it holds
Convincing as a tragic tear.
Upwards! It says look,
There is a star that shines dear.

Withstanding no choice nor reason
Upward I stare, above Earth.
Shrouded in black,
Of light there is a dearth.

I look beyond, beyond the reason
The sun is lost, it cannot be found.
This lays the rocks upon which,
Starlight need make no sound.

The tear that once was tragic
Now has gleaned a streak of wisdom.
The dark is why the star shines thus,
The dark is why it reaps the freedom.

The force veiled as black,
Revealed it’s silver hue.
The lone star shines for,
Blackness shrouded my view.
