Fallin’ Star

falling star colors

Once bright,
bold, and beautiful.
Now dark,
and, diminished.

Its time in the sky
has come, and gone.

It’s hard to stand out
among the millions when you’re
a tiny red dwarf.

No matter the company,
no matter the odds, shine on.
Shine like a supernova.

Without your help,
the world is darkness with:

no way home,
no escape, and
no one to shine along with
