Stars: #Poetry

Stars collide

Rainbow showers of atoms and oxygen fill the air

We look to the heavens at the long-dead wonder

We hear nothing, no sound reaches our ears

Death is silent.

Birth in the cosmos goes unheard

Unlike the screams of mothers below

Will the child’s life be blessed?

Will the path he treads be smooth?

Will he find love to last a lifetime

Or is it all one big accident like colliding stars…

Do we meet a stranger to let fate lead us

Into a lifetime of indifference?

Should we take notice of those untimely collisions?

Walk on by, choose another unnamed for us

Is it heart or mind that leads us?

Do our eyes deceive us?

Is it beauty that blinds us to what should have been…
