Small Stars // by Emily Anne B. (July 2016)

I am the small star in the night sky
The star that has great value
But is only seen as I am
I love to watch people look at us
Our stars
Their past

We watch the moon
Darken with despair for the hopeless ones
and watch her
regain strength once again as others do
I shine brighter on my own
Providing my best light for myself

Watch all those stars around slowly
Lose their light so
They become supernovas or hydro novas
Knowing they have to go
From using all their energy
Hoping a new star will come.
