i am the stars

i am the stars.

i am not the moon.

i am not the sun.

i am not the brightest thing in the sky

nor am I the reflection of it.

i am the small pinpricks of light in the sky

that you see from a distance,

but when you look very closely,

i am shining so brightly.

i am so far from anyone that my light

is barely seen.

but it is always there.

This poem is about: 
Our world
