Featured Literature: Beautiful, Until Not


Poetry Title

Today’s poem is “Beautiful, Until Not” by Andria Henry. Andria was inspired by the stars for this poem. Specifically, the bigger picture of how the stars, something we consider beautiful, can have a deadly side to them.

Beautiful, Until Not by Andria Henry

The stars are as deadly as they are beautiful
fire blazing nice and bright
heat swelling in the darkest night
wishing one day that they can take flight

like a shooting star
or the sun that will one day destroy all human race

picking up the pace
until one day nothing
until nothing is everything
and that everything is anything but beautiful
