What’s Out There? (a poem)

 


I look up at the inky black sky

Bright, white spots litter it tremendously

What’s out there?

 

I gaze at the pale moon as it lights up the world of night

The craters so large, they could hold an entire city

What’s out there?

 

I can barely make out planets that look like specks

But they are extra large that could hold anything

But they are light years away

What’s out there?

 

We may be able to see galaxies that are billions of light years away

We may be able to spot comets and asteroids just as far

But what we can’t see is other life

Does it exist?

Is it possible?

Is it rational?

I would say so; otherwise, it would be an awful lot of wasting of space

 

We have rockets that can travel so far, but no one can travel to other galaxies

To other planets

To venture out and explore

But maybe one day, we’ll be able to answer the big question:

What’s out there?

Featured Review

A question that everyone asked but nobody successfully answered(yet). With a world such as big and wide as we believe, then there has to be something else.


Personally, I always re-read my poems(except for certain few) often out loud and edit a little bits here or there which just doesn't seem "right" when I read them.
But to each his own.

i am the same way when i write - if i think about it too much - i wont publish it or write it

you have a natural way with words and this expression allows the reader to see the depth of your preceptions

I agree it is terrifying yet interesting to know what's out there. One part of me wants to discover and another tells me not to disturb, funny isn't it?

Thanks for sharing awesome read :)
