That Star: A Poem


Aren loves to write poems. Her muse is usually nature , but it can also be anything that inspires her.


Life is full of suffering. That sentence is a cliche but it is the sad truth. Our journey in this world is not filled with rainbows and unicorns all the time, but instead with rain and thunderstorms. Sometimes, it becomes so dark that we think our life is like the night without the light of the moon and the stars. We are sometimes lost in that darkness that we are not sure if the day will ever come. The day does come somehow, but first, we need someone who can guide us through the dark. In this poem, that Star is the one I believe that will guide me.

And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.

— 1 Peter 5:10

Who is that star? That Star is the only light in the dark. He is our hope. He is always there waiting for us to come to Him; to pray to Him; to ask Him for help. He does not promise to automatically save us from troubles, but He does promise us that He will be there in the middle of it – guiding us and accompanying us until we are finally free from the clutches of our problems. He is God.


That Star: A Poem

I used to walk this path of darkness

Used to think I am nothing, I am hopeless

It’s better to be still than to break apart

Better than breaking my heart

Used to be the weeds in this garden,

Used to stare flowers climbing up the heavens,

Lifting up my leaves, my soul, my aching heart

Wishing to reach that afar

Wishing on that Star

I will ride this ride full of light

Then I’ll close my eyes

And pray you will be by my side

There are times when

This night will be filled with pain

But that Star up on the sky

Will always be my guide

Seeking the warm face of success

Longing for its embrace

To reach the peak

Is my lifelong quest

In my heart, hopes penetrate

Every step I take shows off courage

This night will be through

Soon then my dreams will come true

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.

— Romans 15:13
