In times full of darkness,
I hope to shine like a star.
Pushed, stepped on; no matter what,
I know I have to probe afar.
For stars don’t shatter in thunderstorms,
They pick their lightning swords to fight,
Against the roaring, darkening clouds,
And they keep shattering them with their might.
For stars, I know, are the jewels of the night,
And warriors of the universe,
And sometimes they too fall off,
To grant a wish and remit a curse.
