Stardust

As far as I know, my existence in this world is not of my own doing.

My name, as far as I know, t'was a decision without my consent;

a decision with which I must live.

 

I am but a Symphony of Energy,

Bathed in Light,

Clothed in Stardust.

 

My consciousness, much like yours,

has been shaped by an environment of which

I have no control,

of which I exist.

 

A place not of my choosing.

Like you, I am a part of that which I have been placed.

Like you,

 

We are but a Symphony of Energy,

Bathed in Light,

Clothed in Stardust.

 

Like you, I am courage.

A foreigner in a foreign land, but familiar for Earth is my...our home.

It takes Courage to call me strange as I am - you.

 

Like you, I am fear;

for I know that I am unknown

in a place unknown

to a people unknown to me.

To whom I too am not known.

Parity, parallel but potentially paralyzing still,

for I am an unfamiliar reflection of you,

as you are to me...unfamiliar.

 

Unknown but known for we fear when faced with the unfamiliarity of self.

Like you, I was brought here atop the back of hope.

It is the food upon which I feed,

it is the lullaby that my mother sang to me at night.

It is the blanket that my father pulled from the Heavens

and tucked me underneath.

It is a world built by dreams of Harmony

for the reality that houses my world is one of Hopelessness.

 

It is my...our mother’s lullaby,

You are but a Symphony of Energy,

Bathed in Light,

Clothed in Stardust.
