Gazing Up At The Stars

Gazing up at the stars too numerous to count,

I wonder…am I alone in this universe,

But how could I be alone in this great vastness?

How many planets are out there,

Invisible to the naked eye,

Invisible to the most powerful of human invention?

What wondrous life must surely exist

Somewhere under these uncharted atmospheres,

Somewhere beyond our mortal senses.

Only our own arrogance could blind us to the possibility,

That we are not solitary creatures.

For now, dreams of faraway places will have to suffice,

Living in my vivid imagination

Until proof can be delivered by the skeptics.

  1. I love this. I am a true believer that there is life out there – we are not alone. How can we be so arrogant to think we are the only ones – truly we are not. Until someone says otherwise I say there is!! 🙂

  2. “Only our own arrogance could blind us to the possibility,…That we are not solitary creatures.”

    Much truth in these words, Dom – but happy are those born with sight but chose to live in darkness.
