Never Stop Shining

Through the branches and

Through the branches and under the leaves, lies a shy,

Through the branches and under the leaves, lies a shy, little, glowing star.

She sits waiting for

She sits waiting for her time to shine, but she fears

She sits waiting for her time to shine, but she fears it will never come.

When her name is called,

When her name is called, she floats onto the bright stage.

When her name is called, she floats onto the bright stage. “I am El,” she says.

Her song begins and

Her song begins and she begins her piece, but too

Her song begins and she begins her piece, but too soon, the others boo.

Sadness washes through

Sadness washes through her, then replaced with fury.

Sadness washes through her, then replaced with fury. “You’ll all regret this!”

She zooms off in haste,

She zooms off in haste, shooting into the night sky.

She zooms off in haste, shooting into the night sky. Eyes streaming diamonds.

Anger boiling and feelings hurt, she decides that

Anger boiling and feelings hurt, she decides that life is not for her.

Emotions explode,

Emotions explode, sending fiery hate around.

Emotions explode, sending fiery hate around. El becomes no more.

Below, they scatter

Below, they scatter but they are no match for El.

Below, they scatter but they are no match for El. They all die with her.

With each passing, leaves

With each passing, leaves a mark that shines intently.

With each passing, leaves a mark that shines intently. Stars make sure of that.
