A Select Few

Take A Universe, infinity a must

With limited sight, we can only trust

Circle a galaxy, spiraled in design

With billions of stars, so hard to keep in mind

To a planetary system that has only nine spheres

Even then, it exists for billions of years

Take a planet, third from it’s sun

Finally some understanding, has begun

With a land mass inconsequential to the seas

Our own insignificance drops us to our knees

We barely understand the simplest things

Navigate it’s surface with plastic wings

And barely know the seas and their life

Uninhabitable without incredible strife


Yet we contend that we know our maker

We consider only one of many fakir

The chosen few to his creation and dreams

As delivered by our plots and schemes

Written down through only thousands of years

Suffering his neglect with billions of tears

An insignificant stain with a sun quite small

Hopelessly lost in the midst of them all

We endlessly find ourselves alone on the ground

Seeing waters and land, while barely moving around

Rightfully so, we are always looking beyond

Someday to know  our place, a self-significant pond

And so we swim in place, in our little paradise

Yet most times unhappily, blindly, paying the price.
