Little Star Lost - Poem by William C. Devine

I am in my own right a star,
But I don't know who my parents are.
Surely I was born in a galaxy.
But which one I do not know.

I have wandered by many of these,
But none so far have claimed me.
Why this is so I find it odd,
But I can only say I do not know.

So on I go the great void through
But the feelings of hopelessness makes me blue.
Wandering, wandering, a little star lost,
But where to find a home I do not know.
