She wondered how she got here,
With so many secrets left untold,
As to how she braved the wind and rain along this ever winding road.
Looking at her secret past,
she had to wonder how she came,
to be such a wild and booming presence in an endless galaxy.
And among the stars, she ponders,
how she could ever shine so bright,
when a million and one unsightly souls desperately tried to dim her light.
And briefly, for a moment,
if you stop just for a while,
you too will see the light she gives the night for when she smiles.
But with constellations ever changing,
no one could memorize her skies.
And they all tried so desperately to bring her to their size.
She refused to acknowledge intimidation,
they said her vast expanse was wrong.
So she continued to smile through the hurt and the pain,
though they said she didn't belong.
But even with her power,
her inner force grew cold.
But she continued to shine until her strength was far too much for them to hold.
And though she's one of brave and bold,
I guess it all makes sense.
You see, you can't prevent a star from shining
when it's the universe condensed.
