By Eleni, age 13

Alone in inky energy.
No fire that burns like you and me
In this desolate, icy place,
Antimatter fills the empty space.

In the struggle we find each other,
Hydrogenless sisters and brothers.
Luminously red and blue
You’re like me and I’m like you.

Now a cluster, a glowing wonder
The vacuum quivers, our voice is thunder,
And I feel in my core, I’m no longer alone.
There’s a glow of familiarity in this unknown.

And we’re all becoming something stronger,
Something that will last much longer.
I feel gravity bringing us closer
As we turn supernova.
