Like the Stars and Yesterday


United States

Like stars we are born

Proud and loud

But as time goes on

Some will fade

While others shine with waxing strength

Others dim as time goes on

Waning in light

Waning in strength

They fade away like yesterday

I feel dim

I feel myself waning

Though no fault of others that shine

I feel hopeless

I feel dead

Like those of yesterday
