"Be who you are and say what you want, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind." ~Dr.Suess


It’s funny how we forget
Where we really are
On this tiny little planet
Surrounded by vast black space
Filled with the unknown

Planets, stars, black holes
All things that could destroy our home
In a mere instant
Nothing we could do to avoid it

I guess we’ve all accepted
That the outside world isn’t in our control
So we don’t pay much attention to it
In our everyday life

Sure we celebrate solar eclipses
And watch the stars at night
But we keep living everyday
In ignorance of what’s truly around us


The author's comments:
I am personally afraid of space, and i feel i think about it more than i probably should. But thinking about it really opens up the imagination and the mind, so i wanted to share what i think about.
