Out There


In a universe so vast there exists our role

What part we play from day to day

Created the past defines the present

and births the future

Given only one chance to play our role

We must partake or eternally seal our fate

Succumbing to the dreaded black hole

Mysterious and dense displaying little sense

Barring those who never grow old

Omitting those that can't be told聽聽

Their hollowed soul has been sold


鈥淲hen they discover the center of the universe,聽a lot of people will be disappointed to discover they are not it.鈥澛

Aww, thank you, Donna-Luisa Eversley. 馃拹

Thank you so much, \ud83d\udc1d Fatima Williams. I love the fact that you read into the meaning of my poetry and what I am trying to convey. I like to convey a message with my poetry and hope I am not the only one that gets it. 馃槂

Ahh I wanted to comment too. It's been so hectic. Again Love the poem. The depth in the meaning of the line "Their Hollowed soul been sold" Is a person with a Hollowed soul good or bad . I'm thinking. Perhaps they missed used their one chance! "Given only one chance to play our role We must partake or eternally seal our fate" I do visit your poetry website for solace sometimes.Love your contributions Priceless 馃馃悵馃

I love your creative writing, Franci. Very nice! Copernicus once convinced the science community of his day that the Earth was the center of the Universe. Boy, was he ever wrong. It's more like we are an infinitesimal nano particle of one grain of sand on all the beaches of the world combined. Or, as the Carl Sagan once observed, "A pale blue dot" in the vastness of our own solar system.
