Looking heavenward for perhaps a meteor
Shooting star, comet and all and more
Beyond the galaxies through the stars
Beyond Mercury, Venus and Mars.
What lies beyond all that we know?
Beyond the sun and the solar glow?
Everything, something, or just not sure?
The secret to life or a pestilence cure?
Here stand I in my position
In awe of macrocosm
Is life beyond the furthest reach,
Or God relaxing on sunset beach?
Is heaven neighbouring paradise?
Or the aliens I can visualise?
Do stand I up there on planet afar
Questioning for the same closure?
Is there a me peering through telescope
Seeking answers through universal grope
Viewing rivers of crystal on a distant moon
Hoping we will all get there and soon?
Can it be said the truth is out there
Or just here or really anywhere?
Is it necessary to search or shall we wait?
Shall we leave our answers up to fate?
These questions are these in forethought
These questions are these that stubborn bought
No more rhetoric or compound disillusion
I wish to cause nature no more intrusion.
