don’t worry, starshine
the human soul, being of majesty
is unconquerable. the projectiles of destruction
add only to its strength, since a simple soul can
withstand the power of a thousand suns
and a thousand moons.
but a brilliant soul
will weave them into a sparkling galaxy.
a star can only be defeated
no matter what comes close
the soul will be unbowed
tall, a flame
burning deepest in the void.
