The beauty of the universe,
Is truly a sight to behold.
There is joy to be found in many places,
And if I could be so bold…
I’d say: Beauty has many faces.
Even in the darkest of nights,
When shadows traverse the planet,
The universe is seen more dazzling and pure;
And all the stars which span it,
Only the darkness can confer.
True beauty is not found skin-deep.
Things which on the surface may seem,
Dark and depressing or freakish and bizarre,
May be just the things which beam,
And bare the most enchanting star.
You shouldn’t reject out of hand,
The beauty which lies in the dark.
You may find you’ve missed, what in life, is most grand:
Something which shines in the dark!
You may miss a new stars’ first spark.
