"What fate awaits us in the breathless horizon?"
Let us overlook the unknown for the time being
How vast is this network of celestial bodies?
Such perfect symmetry above us without our meddling
And the best we can do is to reach out in awe
Lest we miss out on expanded understanding
Risking burning out as we approach the stars
Like children of Icarus
Bearing the hopes and dreams of our ancestors
What is our place in all of this?
What fate awaits us in the breathless horizon?
Tiny ants running amok at the first sign of trouble
Colonies squashed by the impartial feet of nature
As the black hole of insignificance sucks us in unbiased
For the universe favors nothing and no one
It is fair
Which explains its distance upon our mutual murders
The gallons of blood in self-important misdirection
Proving itself meaningless in the randomness of existence
So desperate to think we matter
So equally low on perspective
