Made of Stars

Made of Stars

A Poem by kyoung

Before the earth was thought of
Or even did exist
A skybound star lifetimes away 
Was Withering to dust
Its burning fuel was running out 
So it began to dim
With the last of its vivacity
The stellar beauty burst
Her moieties spread across the void
Untethered by the air 
Iotas eagered through infinitude
In the cosmic mire
This tiny fractions came together 
In tenuous relation
Parts of every star that ever passed
Drawn by gravitation
The stardust came to create a mass
Making something huge
The center began to burn and melt
A living centrifuge
A chronology of fire elapsed
Beauty in its burn
The surface was impassioned 
Until the ground was born
For epochs after was a sphere of sea
Barbaric in its ways
Until at last the interior erupted
Causing land to rise
A spectacle it was to witness
The forest that became
The plants took root and grew up
Alive to wide acclaim
Gingerly, sea creatures tried 
At breathing in the air
They took steps upon the shoreline
traveling with care
Gills to lungs and fins to feet
A wild reckless place
But one stood out above the rest
It was the human race
That is our history in short
That is us so far
Let us never become upset
For we are made of stars
