Shining Stars, You Shine - Poem by Obed dela Cruz

Shining stars, you shine so brightly.
Your light is always shiny
You are known to the galaxy.
You are many but of royalty.

Your fame stays
You burn not like the hays.
Your beauty all desire to have.
All men, you they love.

You are pure
And you endure.
None can hurt you.
Only God can defeat you!

Beauty is your middles name.
Your last name is fame.
People try to remember your names.
You are never late to fashion and style.

But I remind you,
In your greatness, be humble.
Anytime, God can remove you.
Anytime, you can be stumbled.

You cannot last forever.
You can explode anytime.
Yes, people may fight you never
But remind yourself to not just think of your “mine”

Never let pride overtake
Treason, don’t ever make.
Use your fame to promote goodness.
Use your riches to help the helpless.

Your shine lasts long.
Always be strong.
Boast not vanity.
Promote charity!

Care for this world.
Save your planet earth.
You are a beautiful glow.

    What a beautiful poem!
    Describing each little thing about the shining stars.
    I never see shining stars before, but I know it's existing and has a great deal in this life.
