the stars look out
into the sky
to feel the weight 
of darkness
and the distance
in the space 
and the cold 
you gotta live in
when you are born 
to burn

some down on 
this planet
stare into the night
and count each
lonely ember 
to know they're not

but we look up 
to measure
the distance in the space
and the darkness
that surrounds
and the prices
we have paid
in the freeze 
that is exacted
when you are born 
to burn
