In your honor

single star

We talk about you so often
We argue about you too often

You are sought
But elusive in plain sight

We plead for your presence
Yet ignore your arrival

We fight for you
And in so doing
Destroy you

You mean something different
To everyone
Though you remain forever
Unchanged

Perhaps if we were
To name a star after you
All of mankind
Would be captivated by your essence

Unable to look away
Unable to fight
Sharing the night sky
Beneath your radiance

In your honor
A star
Named Peace
Guide us
