The Last Star

Malia Flaverney, 6th Grade, Leland Middle School


In a peaceful and lonely village.

The night sky glistened brighter than ever.

The townspeople watching the boundless void.

With only the droplets of diamonds filling the sapphire abyss.

The next nights were not as bright.

Soon after that night, the next nights were slowly fading.

They were getting dimmer and dimmer. 

Until one night when the sun said goodbye.

Only one star appeared to be bright.

Out of more that 41,000 only one shines.

The humans began to panic and tried to protect the last star.

When the sun rose and set the next day, they realized it was just an empty void.

They only cared and tried to help when it was too late….

When it was all gone, and there was nothing left.
