O’ Sun Lord, bless this light particle so –
Thou mayest expel, and create life upon thee…
Starlight produces the stars so bright
Atoms smashed and fused together in gestation
A million years old, and not out of the womb
Children, not yet hatched, waiting in queue for their flight
Entropy makes this so unpredictable. I did not ask for this!
First starlight that I observe tonight
A child that will outlive its puerpera mother
A sphere of egestion from life until death
Outward bound, light to darkness, in a tireless flight
I am homeless and abandoned. Why did this happen to me?
I wish, and I wish, and I wish, I might
Disgorged and sent out, castaways and vagabonds
Hurtling through the vastness of space
Friendless, hopeless, no destination in sight
Space is so cosmic, am I there yet?
Grant me this wish, this wish of mine tonight
In motion, eternal until an obstacle is met
Twinkle some Illumination to the gloomy twilight
So children can wish upon it with delight
Carrying infinitesimal rays, I discovered my purpose of eternity…
Oh! How I wish, to take the path of starlight
Created through nuclear fusion
The Conveyer of life essence to planets
The final sight of the doomed galaxy in plight
I am more than an astronomical sight. Alight! Alight!
While you are deep in slumber
After a night of gazing at the sky
The starlight will fly
Fleeting presence to ubiquitousness
My crimson mother was my creator
My older siblings were the pioneers
My generation will keep the light on
My younger siblings will bring the cataclysmic
Omnipresence is related to relativity. This is our birthright
We represent the beginning, the middle, and the end
To be honest, this just came to me when I got up at one a.m. to use the bathroom. My mind instantly with a list of lyrics and topics, completely on its own. I rather enjoyed it. I only made two drafts of changes. I just went with two major changes and additions, which kept coming to me as soon as I would finish reading it again. Put everything in the right order, and find the best Monty Python reference. Of course, this was the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch. I feel like this was a beefed up fun version of my normal poems. While dark, it still has many positive revelations and a growth in maturity and understanding.
