Loss Without Gain

the universe is not all that there is
(but it is all that i am)
the ocean has depths that are a different world
(but i will never see them)
the solar system cradles endless stars
(but my eyes will never collect them)
the questions all have answers
(but i will die ignorant)
the journey has an ending
(but i might never begin)
