A MILLION STARS

A MILLION STARS

From the onset, you shone like a million stars

Your art and sonorous renditions were divine

You gave us joy!

At the sound of your voice, the world stood still

You mesmerized kings and queens

You eased the plight of the poor

Your performances were captivating

Your audience stood agape, hearts pumping

Eyes leaking and body twisting

Your talent gave your kin pride

It kept discrimination and stereotype at bay

But to their dismay

You succumbed to the flaws of man

Fortune smiled at you

Posterity shall do the same

Because you made the world bearable

PUBLIUS CRASSUS (JIA)
