I was a Galaxy...

Updated on November 3, 2014

I dreamed I was a galaxy.. surrounded
by reddish light
no longer ..was I afraid..
to face... the darkest night
for I could see....
all the distant galaxies..
all spinning all around..
singing quite musically..
yet none made a sound..

They glittered bright
like shiny steel beads
of coldest night...what a sight..


I was galaxy of millions.. but not
the brightest star...

No.... just an ordinary one... of billions
and they stretch like.... there and................ far


So be your own universe..
shine as bright as you can be..
glitter like the brightest Sun
or the tiniest star you see

Because ..everything.... has a purpose
a meaning and a plan... it often sits... squarely there
in the palm of your own hand
