Stars

Five million trillion trillion–

More than the stars in the universe–

That’s the number of bacteria in the world.

Yet, none of them are national citizens.

Why do we take a group of cells,

Draw borders and call them a nation?

We’re all just a collection of particles

Burning down buildings and lifting up flags.

I beseech you-

Look beyond the obvious

Think above yourself

Realise that life has no higher meaning,

That we’re just an accidental creation.

Like the metal in our beating hearts,

Forged from a dying star,

Our minds are a culmination

Of universal miracles and disasters.

Every atom has its own story,

Every cell has its soul.

We are the children of the stars

And nothing more.
