I am the star

I am one of the trillions, kissing the sky with poetic songs, rare, amongst the tallest, grandest trees,

My beauty is untouchable from the eyes, you need a magnify telescope to capture my tiniest size.

I may seem small, unimportant, insignificant, yet I am great, powerful, yes that’s me!

‘cause, I was design, shape, created, to shine in the darkest night.

 I am here, even if you cannot touch, nor see, how excellent I am, the brilliant me.

If you look deeper amongst the many, when found, you will be amaze,

I cannot be bought, nor sold, I am a priceless; greater than millions, smaller than a penny. 

Some has wondered, lost in their dreams, some have even forgotten my name, searching endlessly,

I am here as you dream, you’ll say, ‘awe’—oh I wish that could be—me,

when you’re gone, no matter what, “Still, I am here as you seek’’

where I am, so magnificent, all is love—there are no hate, envy, nor jealousy

And no name, *greater, grander, wiser than the breathtaking me; “Who I am?”

“I am the tiniest, yet grand, bright, morning star, morning light,

stand amongst the many, you wish, you could ever be!”

About the author


This bio will be short. I am a graduate of Medgar Evers College. Mother of three and grandmother. I love to read and write poetry.

To those who have been a great support in reading my website and those who just came across this poetry this will be the ending of my poetic journey for now. I hope there will be a new chapter in my life that will be a success and inspired people to be far better in their thoughts, words and deeds. I am working on myself and it’s been hard.... yet I am getting there. When I began my poetry, I felt so deeply inspired. Now when I write I just write (feeling burned out of all that has occurred and is occurring) and I am feeling as if my poetry isn’t moving in the manner that I feel it should because I have not place myself in a position to be active reading my poetry at live venues for my own personal reason. I wanted to thank those who took the time to read my poetry especially my love ones. Thank you for being on the journey with me. Peace and blessings.
