I was blessed enough to awake at prime
to witness the intriguing stars align.
I was up in the sky and for the very first time
they seemed much closer that I felt almighty
as if I could pluck them out and arrange them however I’d like.
The experience felt so personal
for on the other side of the plane
was the awakening of dawn.
just as breathtaking
but I knew deep down
it wasn’t for me.
It was like two opposing forces coming together at daylight
colliding with the strongest of might.
I’ve always looked upon these stars that fill the night sky
with a whole lot of admiration
trying to find the root of their existence
why they’re aligned the way that they are
or why they’re even there.
There’s no perfect scientific explanation
for such a mysterious existence
that could merely be meant for decorating purposes.
But one thing I realised that I never did before
was that no matter what constellations they formed
they all seemed effortlessly flawless
as if they were meant to be placed wherever they were.
Maybe that’s what it’s supposed to be with us humans
that’s how we meet the people we do.
Because there’s that higher force up there
carefully placing the stars in perfect alignment
allowing us to seek solace in our companions
with the constellations to guide our souls
to yearn and seek consolation.
