Fantasy / Epic

Did you know that the atom of our bodies are traceable to stars? These stars manufactured by atoms in their cores and then exploded these enriched ingredients across the galaxy, billions of years ago. For this reason, we are all biologically connected to every other living thing in the world. We are chemically connected to all molecules on Earth. And we are anatomically connected to all atoms in the universe. We are not figuratively, but literally stardust. Isn’t that just amazing? My body is a literal universe in itself, my veins have stardust running through them, my heart is a oon and my mind is the sun. My outer body is a layer of space concealing an entire galaxy and my scars and moles are a constellation waiting to be explored. Which is why I do not look to my death and see it as an ending. I know that for a star to be born, there is one thing that must happen: a gaseous nebula must first collapse. I know that my ending is just me collapsing, crumbling. This is not a part of my destruction, but rather, it is a part of my birth.
