World of Stars

by Seyoum Nigussie


GENRE: Poetry



World of Stars is a collection of poetry that portrays the beauties of nature and human experiences in the world. The poems enumerate various places, events, personas, notions and conditions that deserve poetic attention. A portion of the poems are made for tributes and gratitude to great personas who make this world as adorable as it is.

The poems are on varied topics and distinct from each other. Abstract and subjective ideas are woven into the poems to highlight the degree of transcendence. All the poems are metrical composition. By illustrating the good side of the world and nature within it, the poems aim to elevate people to a good way of looking at life as beautiful and meaningful.



Stars Every Where

Countless heavenly stars rock in the cosmos

Glamorous stars walk the earth for good cause.

Every where they reach for social worth

Stars every where delight of human growth

Through infinite universe that exists forever

Up in skies brighter and on earth glimmer,

To mark human lives for better and better

Gracious they are, stars appear every where.

As mysterious universe is subtle and endless

There could be time for galaxies to impress.

Leading human world into new progress

Fathoms of spirit generate legends to redress.

As microcosmic creatures inhibit on earth

Star lights come forth to unleash sound health.

Striving and tackling renewal of ethical wealth

Invincible stars would show up for moral rebirth.

As fountain of all lives and blossom of love

Stars reinvigorate themselves further to live.

As images of dreams and homages to believe

Stars every where shine out cures to relieve.



Describing My Book and How it Came About

The design of my book cover is an instant look at the marvelous universe with tars and humans living within it. The cosmos and nighttime stars exhibit lights adorning the cosmos and keeping the balance of the universe as harmonious. That is one aspect of the book titled as 'World of Stars' encompassing the human world as related to the universe. The cover is a snapshot of a picture of what you see is what you will get in the poems.

The beauty of the cosmos and the balance of the cosmos is barely noticed by many people, and yet, two young boys look at the sky-high stars with awe. This is another side of the coin which makes calls for 'World of Stars' to take the lead to virtues of gratitude. The beauty of the cosmos with stars full of it is driven by ideal beauty that goes around everywhere in the human world. It goes without saying there are stars in human forms.



The world and life in general was promising to me until I was 17 years in my native country of Ethiopia. While a high school student in 1974, the world around me came crashing down when communist military Junta took state power and soon started a killing spree, at times committing mass murder. This was very traumatizing and the start of Stalinist ‘Red Terror’ on the ground. It was bad enough to hate being in life. From this, I quickly learnt life in the world is about taking on adventures.

With six of my school friends and one of our teachers, we formed an alliance to take action against the Junta. With 2 years of preparation we had managed to inform the public and get the local police headquarters on our side. Then, in April 1976 we staged a rebellion without violence in Nekempte, provincial capital of Welega.  The revolt was short-lived, nothing lost with little gain. Amidst media control of the Junta, the news of rebellion was heard across the country. After that, my friends and I vowed to individually take on challenges for democracy as a life-long mission. We split apart and I went underground. When the security situation became harsh, I left the country for Sudan.

Despite traumatizing news and the realities around me with the ‘Periods of Gloom and Doom’, I took refuge in reading classical poetry which became my long time passion.

After a long journey through ups and downs, I suffered a car accident in Sudan, and left Africa all together - migrating to Canada in 1990. Through my journey in life, I looked around for a drug of relief from grief and nostalgia.  Poetry reading had become my choice for entertainment and to delete bad memories and traumas. Soon after I realized that positive poetry is as good as drugs, music and paintings are, I decided to write one and here I begin with World of Stars.
