You are light
Though dull and dimmed
From your distance
Away from the light
At the center of all

You shine of your own accord
But only with leave of a universe
That moves entire empires
At its whim

There are shadows in that universe
Fighting to be unchained
From the glory of the light
At the center of all

They hunt
Under cover of blackest night
Avoiding the pinpricks of starlight
Piercing the sky

Seeking weaker lights
To drink into the darkness
Staying far from the glory
At the center of it all

Lest they burn
