Children

We are mere

children

of the void.

Specks on an

infinitesimally small

mote in limitless space.

Lost by size,

overlooked by indifference.

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.

Soon, it will be determine

if we all slide

into the depths

of non existence

with nor a sigh

from the universe,

or transform into the Seers,

watching the birth

of intelligence

on a galactic scale.

What a pivot indeed!
