I want to be a star,

To sit upon a throne of darkness,

Watching man’s struggles and prosper,

Living for eons in a land of silence and threadbare,

In a place where the void rules all in this nothingness,

And I will know when my time is at its end,

But then after my exotic destruction and death,

I will always be remade by a stroking hand of God,


I want to be a star, 

To watch man stare up at me in wonder,

Wondering if I am far, far away,

Or am I truly closer than it looks?

I shine along with the other million stars,

But we are all different,

We are memories from the past,

And will be memories of the future,

I want to be a star...
