I’m a constellation spinning in the sky
I’m 100 eyes staring at the world
I’m a supernova, imploding and erupting
I’m a far off glint in a sea of ink
I’m a challenge to wondering minds
I’m a guardian watching over earth
I’m an anomaly, an enigma, a cosmic miracle
I’m the glitter of diamonds in the deep mine of space
I’m a child, wondering what twinkles so brightly 
I’m a promise that the universe is perfect
I’m a mystery of what lies above
I’m close, but so, so far away
I’m a reminder of the beautiful world we live in
I’m the night sky
