And the early morning’s
Even if millons of miles away,
The star itself
Is already dead
The line itself was depicting Jose Rizal for the author symbolizes the life of Pepe as a star that even today, like the stars, still shimmering and we are commending for it gives us a friend in the form of light every night, Jose Rizal still on earth with the presence of his wisdom and bravery in the solidarity of the whole Filipino. A star in which we see every night and as a sun every morning, but whatever time the star will be reflecting to us I strongy believe that it is an evidence that we see Jose Rizal in every body of his works.
Jose Rizal, who was one of the spearheads in resisting and advocating political change during the Spanish Era, still had his name resounds throughout the country. It was because of his work, that carries hope, influenced people to seek independence from Spaniards. For that reason, his name and legacy would be remembered and continue to remember for eternity, although he was already dead.
The poem talks about our hero Dr. Rizal. He may be dead like the stars light years away but is still shining this days. And everything he did will forever be with us, giving light to our minds.
Rizal is a catalyst of change. He demands freedom not only for his self but also for his countrymen. The star represents him as a symbolic trade of enlightenment. The darkness of the Spanish era were people see but not speak about discrimination and maltreatment. He opened our eyes; he was foundation of other revolutionist and the steppingstone of every hero we have to fight for our freedom and sovereignty. He is a living example not only in his time but up to this day. And if star dies it creates super nova wherein it explodes this bursting colors -a beautiful astronomical phenomena. Like Rizal he was once star for others to see and look above. Grateful, brave, and keen a good hero. No, a great one. And his death was not tragic nor sad, but He knows his death contributed to grief but opened and struck our Katipunan and Revolution to withstand our invaders. Through him we stand free and in memory he remains.
