This is just something that came to me...Some of Anakin's thoughts on the way the galaxy works. I hope you like it! (Personally, I think it's one of my best poems ever...)
A Chain of Reflections
I'm looking out the viewport of the ship
My eyes sweep the vast expanses of space around me.
An infinite blackness, muffled and silent
Broken only by the silver pinpricked light of stars and planets
Almost in passing, it strikes me
How similar they are to the myriad atoms of the galaxy
And how much they appear to be
Small and perfect, like the tears cried by a billion beings.
And I wonder, why is it like this?
For every star in this galaxy
Somewhere, a tear has been shed.
And for every tear that is shed,
Somewhere, a negative emotion grows stronger.
And I ask myself, why does this have to be?
Jealousy, greed, lust, fear,
Each is an impetus for anger.
A wise mentor once spoke this to me,
"Fear leads to anger,
Anger leads to hate,
Hate leads to suffering."
There is so much suffering around me,
I wonder that others can ignore it.
But why does this have to be?
A tear falls into my hand
And I look out the viewport
Half expecting to see another star.
Well, there you have it! Please review! You WILL review. (waves hand encouragingly) May the Force be with you.
