Celestial footslog

The stars in the night I peer
And I wonder
What sits beyond it
Is it Kahn
Perhaps its god
Perchance a fool’s paradise

It pains me to know
The self-deception we know all too well
A fermi paradox
But rather the fact
We fetishize the stars
With no means to influence connect with godlike creatures

Is its sheer curiosity,
Or is it a reason to live,
This world has so much pain
But other planets haven’t had a human touch
they retain their innocence
