How a Star is Formed

How a Star is Formed

A vast dark place is where I am found
Has no plans other than to float around. 
Just looking at those who shine so bright, 
While wondering when will I have my own light.

Then I felt a sudden change in my space
Everything was getting out of place. 
Instead of giving in and letting myself fall apart,
I learned to fight back which made my strong heart. 

My burning core continued to radiate
Something I did not anticipate.
Thus, this light is earned after surpassing the storm
Now I understand how stars are formed.
