One starry night

I stare into the starry night sky,

To notice they are brighter than yesterday!

They seemed to be saying something,

Which out of all days, happened today!

What mysteries do these stars hide?

Is it the myth of human progress we claim?

Or an affirmation of reality?

I would never know! for down here I stand,

Becoming one with nothingness, walking through a strange land!

Yet within my inner canvas, these stars make sense,

Remind me I am something in the nothingness

Though I feel small in a certain case,

This is an affirmation — in this universe I have a place!

To look at it from a perspective unseen

Say about it things unsaid,

And drown in the beauty of creation,

Until wisdom dawns upon my inner self.
