Purpose

-18-

If we came from stardust,

where has the sparkle gone?

How can we show the stars

that they, in fact, are not lost,

that we, in fact, are still shining?

If being from the heavens

means light eternal, even after existence,

even in the darkest of nights,

and perhaps the choirs of angels

what does it mean to be of the earth,

and utterly human?
