all the stars are out tonight

4 Jul

bursting, blasting, giving all for one brief night

all the stars are out tonight

giving light where before there had been darkness

allowing the wounds to heal after

so much hatred

each of us on a field of blue

more of us each day

flourishing against all the odds

providing our own bright display

each unique to itself

all brash and independent

a bit too bright and a bit too loud

all the stars burst out upon the ground

and the crowd goes “Ahhhhhh!”

then still more stars go Pop!

with a crazy recklessness

and an unrestrained joy

all the stars are out tonight

and the crowd goes “Oooooooo!”
