Life in interstellar space will have its perks.
One day the horizon won’t seem so vast,
when we step off the planet of our birth.
we’ll look ahead into the past
to find a future
never seen on Earth.
The farther out we look
the further back
to the moment of Creation,
and deep within the void,
immersed in black,
the greater is
We will no longer cast a downward gaze –
out’s the only direction –
nor claim there’s too few hours in our days –
length will be a personal selection –
no planetary spin will dictate ours,
when we are journeying among the stars.
