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

You have a way of thinking outside the box, and that's fact reflective of two last lines. Brilliant.

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. :)
