The Origin of Talent

Suppose all the stars

Had descended from the sky

And fallen to the earth

To live amongst the world

.

They had come down

In flashes of light

As comets

Shedding their light

Throughout

The stratosphere

.

When they reached the ground

They covered their heads

Pretended there was nothing to see

And began to work

Among the common man

.

They created miracles

Thin fingers

Pulling silver

Into thin wires

Voices creating songs

Unimaginable

.

People said

The stars were angels

Fallen to heaven

Not people

Fleeing the path of a dark hole

.

They all seemed

Perfect and delicate

Innocent

And pure

But on Earth

That reserve fell away

And they fell

Into the troubles

Of the common man

.

Wickedness

And despair

Crowded into the space

In their hearts

Where starlight was keep

And brought out that light

A blown out candle in the dark

Blinding them

To life as

The once-star

.

Now they wander about

With amnesia

Of their past

All acting

Like the humans

Around them

And not remembering

Life as a star

Who they are

And what they can really be
