The Space Between

I gather up all of my courage
My gaze drifts to the evening sky 
All that space there between 
Alien visitation must be a lie 
The sun and moon still shine for us 
Eventually they burn out and die 
Everywhere a sea of murkiness 
With little spots of distant light 
No comfort in their glowing beacons
They lack warmth beyond their sight
All the wisdom in every book 
Can’t make sense out of a starry night 
We may someday sprint off this rock 
Conquer every planet to the last 
Our population my even explode 
An empire that will be unsurpassed 
The only thing worse than a prison too small
Is a prison that is too vast 

Dedicated to the Messiah.....He knows why

    Ash's to ash's, lost in space. Where to now St. Peter, when we leave this place. Existing in a void annoyed. Are we all just an alien android? Drift in peace dear fellow saint. The picture's always what you paint. Peace. :)
