Poem I wrote when I was thinking about starlight, and how we too can been seen (our ideas, memories, what we stood for) after we die.

When I die

Will I go out like a star

Will the light of my being

Travel through

Travel far

Will it touch only the ones

Who knew me the most

Will the impact of my explosion

Be seen as a ghost


Will the thoughts twirling in my mind

Be left in the trees

Will a new seed that drops

Be inspired by me

If my light will continue

What else can it reach

If my life has touched others

And I never met their brothers

Then did I maybe change them

Does the cycle ever end
