Stars and Us

If you look at the millions of stars stretched out above you, you realize how small you are.

It’s a good thing to be reminded of. In the grand scheme of things, you’re tiny. A mere blip.

But you’re also irreplaceable, invaluable, and miraculous. Truth is, those stars ain’t got nothing on you! 😉

A Poem I Wrote at Age 11

“Stars”

Why do we call them stars

when the stars are in the sky?

Are they worthy of this name?

Not nearly, and I know why.

While the Stars only shine

when the cameras are on,

the real Stars shine all night

until the crack of dawn.

So why do we call them Stars?

Are they worthy of this name?

No, and if they are

then we are too,

for all humans are the same.

I’m writing this poem

for all the world to see,

that calling the “stars” celebrities

will be just fine with me.

 

There is something beautiful about a billion stars held steady by a God who knows what He is doing…stars
