Sit back and read the story of the universe–
written in the stars,
written in our scars,
and we’ve never known worse.
But that’s okay, since the stars keep shining,
The closest star to Earth is so far away
that if it were to look back on us “today”,
all it would see would be dinosaurs
And yet it still lights
up our nights,
still makes out constellations
and hangs over our nations
through thick and thin,
through wars– no matter who wins.
Because they tell the story of the universe in their only voice
and even though it’s not our choice,
we might as well listen.
