This is my first ever riddle. Hopefully, it's not too obvious (or stupid) :-)

When it breaks it doesn't hurt

A symbol of a whole new birth

One letter changed and a star's name

Tomorrow the path will be the same.

I think it may be

Dawn

When it breaks it doesn't hurt

It doesn't hurt when dawn breaks (unless you're a vampire)

A symbol of a whole new birth

A new day, a new life

One letter changed and a star's name

Dawn -> Down. Add sun to get sundown, the continuation of the path described below. (Thanks to Will in the comments!)

Tomorrow the path will be the same.

The sun follows the same path every day.

    $\begingroup$ If the third line refers to sundown then the riddle is sort of "cyclic" in a way... $\endgroup$ – Will May 6 '16 at 0:47

Obviously not right, but:

Amniotic sac

When it breaks it doesn't hurt

When a woman's water breaks, it's not usually accompanied by pain

A symbol of a whole new birth

But it does mean the baby is coming!

One letter changed and a stars name

Obvious again. Just change one I to an A, and rearrange the letters, you get "A MANIAC SCOT", so perhaps Gordon Ramsey...or really any other famous Scotsman

Tomorrow the path will be the same

Well, perhaps not after childbirth...

Does tie in with the puzzle's title though!

The Sun

When it breaks it doesn't hurt

Sunbreak...

A symbol of a whole new birth

That could mean all sorts of things, probably birth of a new day

One letter changed and a star's name

Tricky one, threw me off because obviously "Sun" doesn't need any letters changed. There is a star named "San" though, at least according to this http://starnames.wikia.com/wiki/Stars_Beginning_with_S

Tomorrow the path will be the same.

I certainly hope so!

I think it is:

A heart

When it breaks it doesn't hurt:

A broken heart doesn't hurt.. Physically anyway..

A symbol of a whole new birth:

A heart is often used to represent lives in games, which signify a respawn, or a new 'birth'

One letter changed and a stars name:

Not sure

Tomorrow the path will be the same:

Not sure

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ Not even close, but I do really like the "whole new birth" explanation :D $\endgroup$ – Eutherpy May 6 '16 at 0:36
  • $\begingroup$ Just an idea, for the letter change, "heart" takes the "h" and put it at the end, you get "earth" (not a star but ...) $\endgroup$ – 永劫回帰 May 6 '16 at 2:38
  • $\begingroup$ @駑馬十駕 Yes, I did think of that, but as you mentioned, sadly not a star $\endgroup$ – Xylius May 6 '16 at 2:56
