Children

Children prose poem

Photo by paulscott56


We are mere children of the void.
Specks on an infinitesimally small mote in limitless space.
Lost by size, overlooked by indifference.
A universe indifferent to our existence.
The stars will shine, the planets will spin regardless of our future.
We are children who have a high opinion of ourselves, think we talk to God. Presumptuous beyond belief.
Yet, we are children on the verge of a pivot of unimaginable scope, into infinite knowledge or total oblivion.
It all hangs on a thread. The next thirty years will determine if we all slide into the depths of non existence with not a sigh from the universe, or transform into the Seers, watching the birth of intelligence on a galactic scale. What a pivot indeed!
