I Am

I am a shimmering star that leaves a trail of silver light as I glide by.  

I wonder how far I can shine before my silver runs out.  
I hear the faint twinkle of other distant stars.  
I see a cast darkness, waiting for my illumination.  
                                              
I want to be a brilliant light through the vast unknown.   
I am a shimmering star that leaves a trail of silver light as i glide by. 
 
I have the answer to all of distant space. 
I feel a growing confidence as I enter the dark, unsearched shadows. 
I touch each point in space leaving my lasting glow. 
I worry that as my silver fades, my glow may be forgotten. I cry when other glowing stars stay in regions already enlightened. 
 
I am a shimmering star that leaves a trail of silver light as I glide by.  

I understand the choice I have: to pierce the darkness, oe stay in the light.  
I say, "I'll leave no trail if I stay in the brilliant light, for my shine adds no more illumination to the light." 
  
I dream that my shine will inspire others to challenge their darkness. 
 
I try to make a difference as I go by.  
I hope in time, the dark will shine as bright as day. 

I am a shimmering star that leaves a trail of silver light as I glide by.
