Inspired by the tenacity of kids with terminal illnesses, their bravery in accepting their fate and their bright positive thinking. Like stars, their lives burn shortly relative to the universe but burns brilliantly nonetheless.

Bright, bright, bright—
I am bright like the sun
I am bright like the night.

Because I can,
I was a prince, I was a princess.
But even royalty feel pain, so
I am in pain today.

Pain is such a pain!
Pain is that annoying presence
I will not give in to.
Not to my body, not to my bones!

Because I can,
today I’m a queen,
today I’m a king.
I will not
bow down to pain!
