As I stand on the i s o l a t e d stage of night,
There is nothing but pitch darkness engulfing me.
The Moon is nowhere to be found, for it has run its course.
Today is the day I must illuminate the Earth by myself.
Only me, to dominate over the cold vast abyss.
A star! They call me. But I just feel like a huge ball of gas.
After relying on the Moon’s ✧sovereignty✧, tonight I am left to my own devices.
My light may be dimmer than the Moon’s, but I am a creation fabricated for → navigation←.
Ready to make my debut, I remember the lessons I was taught.
Beam. Gleam. Twinkle. Glow.
Procure light for those down below.
