Sometimes I do wonder about the stars. Like, do they ever get tired of shining and twinkling for people who do not appreciate their beauty? What’s more, when they cannot even be seen because of the screen we’ve created to separate us, or that we’re too busy to even just stop and take a look at them.
Then, sometimes I think how haughty they are shining there, thinking everyone cares to see them.
But then again, surely it isn’t so. For they force themselves not upon us, who seem too distracted.
They do not become brighter so that they may appear through the screen or so that they may outshine the lights we’ve created and bombarded ourselves with. No, they shine, and those who wish to see will see.
They favor the simple, the calm, the unrushed, those who mind to stop and look up knowing that they do still shine over them.
