Bright Star

Bright Star

A Poem by Poetic Beauty
"

For my Niece Kay

"
Oh, little bright star
That shines so bright
Why can you not
See your own light

It beaming with rays
Brilliant and white
Glowing beautifully
A stunning sight

A twinkle that glows
Dancing with glee
A shiny speck
For all to see

Oh, little bright star
That shines so bright
Why can you not
See your own light

It’s filled with love
A warmth aglow
A sparkle at night
That always shows

It silvery gleam
Beams in the night
That lights a path
With bright white light

Oh, little bright star
That shines so bright
Why can you not
See your own light?

This was such a motivational read. The star is the epitome of brightness and yet it is sadly unable to appreciate its own power. A deep metaphor that was treated beautifully here, it reminds me of those who give light to others inspite darkness looming within them. This is a very noble quality but not always good for those who posses it. They must be reminded of their light, their beauty and goodness. It also reminded me of a loved one who lost her life convinced there was no light in her though she was the brightest and best. A poem that speaks to the reader deeply and has beautiful wording, flow and rhyme.

"Why can you not
See your own light"

i dont know why but these resonated with me so much, i mean, so many people around you feel insecure and less worthy of getting anything positive. you begin to think why is it that they you can see thier bright glow raditing form all corners, yet they fail to notice it??

on a side-note, loved the poem, and they way you worded it, honestly!!

your welcome
I like this. Stars and candles only burn by consuming the fuel they need. Even the universe has a hierarchy of existence and the light of today pales before a brighter tomorrow. But tomorrow is not today and we must wait, we must endure, we must survive the night if we are to witness the dawn.

Star are amazing
A very finely penned allegorical write. It is very rare for any human being to see their own light. Other people's inner light may be visible to them, but not so their own. We rarely acknowledge the power we have within ourselves, but marvel at the power we see in others. We seldom believe in our own strength but never fail to be amazed at the strength we perceive in others. We are made of the same 'stuff' as the stars, yet we see and revere their beauty, but do not concede to our own. Lovely poem and depiction. Thank you for sharing, dear poetess...

I know a few who struggle with self worth, lack of self esteem and no matter what said to them they will not or cannot change, quite sad. I will screen shot this to show to a friend if okay with you.

Totally get that, very nice.
A poem that reads as a song. Motivational and inspirational for all those that do not see their own value such a great metaphor. Star light is small but still their and like us when added together with the light of others it makes a great difference. Very nicely worded and with such a nice flow.

Thank you!! I wrote this one for my niece
Your poem was a pleasure to read. It effectively captures the metaphor of a bright star, prompting contemplation on self-recognition and inner radiance. It beautifully explores the journey of self-discovery and self-appreciation.

You bring this star to life like a human who cannot see the good in her...she must be reminded time after time why she cannot see the light in her soul....i like the repetition and the flow of this lovely poem....some people cannot see the bright light in them...they have to be reminded....
