A map of stars

And the travel of countless steps

Stars must be there for a reason
They’ve guided us to many strange lands
Earth may change every season
Yet one can always count on starry hands.

To lead the way, to shine a path
Fate named stars messengers of her will

Coloured flowers stole my every breath
Yet I bravely wish to write in fitting rhymes

Life invites you, Death welcomes you.

I want to take this chance to (re)invite you to…
