Shine, shine, that brilliance at beginning
So bright to behold, shining star stealing
Light from all others nearby, swollen
With fusion sparks, let down only
By the losses incurred to dull that blaze.
To learn new ways of being when dimmed,
The adjustment of paradigm and power
Distribution oft difficult to aim for when
In the midst of living with such slowdown,
Surrounded by the boundless screens hung in void.
Brilliance means less than nothing without
The determination to see it through, to bring
Forth results from a mere shine, dulled
By existence and existential troubles, line
Held to bridge gaps, regain many losses.
