Birth Of Star

‘Can I touch it?’ asked the little boy,
Young as he was unable to hide his joy…
‘Sure my dear.’ Replied the stranger,
With intentions clear and a hint of pleasure…

Only few could actually see it but the boy knew it not,
As it was just the beginning and he still had to learn a lot…
To some it looked like a gem, to some a sword,
Even a key it looked like to some while rest could just never find the word…

The boy could see a spark spreading a soothing glow,
Inside the pure liquid shimmering as it continued to flow…
As he gently touched it only a moment later,
So excited he was as he had never experienced anything better…

He knew he could actually fly at the moment if he wished,
Nothing seemed impossible as his powers unleashed…
‘Is it real?‘ he asked expecting the worst,
The stranger merely nodded as he felt with ecstasy he would burst…

‘Can I take it? I’ll treasure it forever’,
The boy regretted his courage as it melted under stranger’s stare…
After what seemed like eternity the stranger spoke with a smile,
‘Of course you can. But first listen to me for a while…

No doubt you’ve the ability to make the best out of it,
You’ll achieve then those well deserved extraordinary feats…
But my son, I warn you, as it may cost,
Leaving you battered and completely lost…

It’ll rob you of every smile you ever had,
Leaving behind pain unimagined making one go mad…
Now it’s clear to you, so you can make a choice…’.
With these words vanished the stranger as echoed his calm voice…

That’s the only time the two had ever met,
A meet so unique the boy could never forget…
He then took the spark with him and swore to himself aloud,
No matter what may come he’ll never let that shine cloud…

Since then he’s burning to keep his fire alight,
Sparkling alone in the sky night after night…
