Planetary Lullaby

You used to think that you should be a star,
constantly emitting warmth and light,
and often loathed yourself for being far
from reaching that ideal, celestial height.
But you have come to see you are a world
of forests, deserts, mountains, oceans, plains,
where multitudes of blossoms have unfurled,
with countless lifeforms and diverse terrains.
Some parts of you are frigid, others torrid,
and many varied climates in between.
In you there is the beautiful and horrid,
the surface visible and depths unseen.
You used to think that you should be a star,
but you are a world, superb the way you are.
