Underneath The Stars

The sun sets, instead replaced by the moon
The crescent beauty is surrounded
By the many jewels of the night
Which we call, stars

Every single one different from each other
Each with a brighter shine,
Lanterns to guide us during the darkness

Some are emeralds, great and fair
Others sapphires, calm and yet supreme
Whereas amongst the millions of crystals
There is always a diamond

If you look very carefully
You may see that, they're just like us
Shimmering in our own spotlight
Expressing our true selves
