Like Stars On Earth - Poem by Solomon Sunday

Like Stars on Earth

We all like stars on earth
And like stars we shine
In our time, in our chance
In our space, in our place
Reflecting our light into the dark that covers our being

We all like stars on earth
Though wrapped about with awful mystery
Still precious pearls in us to behold
As evident of our Godly creation
Bright and glorious is our revelation
Written in the skies for the world around us
Like burning fire we glow in the earth that speaks of fear

We all like stars on earth
Beautiful in creation
And priceless in value
Relentlessly we must shine
Beneath our skin comfort we must live
And live for our purpose

We all like stars on earth
As shadow at night we must portray our light out of the clay that frame us up
Image of our maker we live for
Glory from our existence he wait for
As our brightness renew day after day

We all like stars on earth
In our shape we live for a purpose
In a world far away from home
A world full of hate and dirt
Envy and cruelty
A world corrupt with immorality
Yet far away from home
We can rehabilitate our life
Even out of the most notorious deed
Spreading our colours as rainbow in the sky
And making our world brighter with our burning fire

We all like stars on earth
Created to shine and twinkle
In the earth larger than our space
And skies bending to mend our brokenness
This is our commission
Even in our corrupt bodies
A new creation we are
And a new light we must bring
When the dark come out of the day
Before your life bleed into the grave to behold what heaven holds
Hear the sound of revival deep down from this breathing world

We all like stars on earth
And like stars we must shine the emblem of our real home
Where we all tack from
Brighter and better in this dirty, greedy and selfish land

Though we die on earth
Yet we are reborn in heaven sky
In charity abode

    We are wrapped about with awful mystery
    There are precious pearls in us to behold
    We are Godly creation; glorious is our revelation
