waiting and wondering

night

i gaze into the depths of space

and contemplate our cosmic place;

we’ve scanned the skies for other life

and never found a single trace.

but if some day we find it, then

(it’s less like if and more like when)

at last we’ll know our rightful place

as lonely gods or slighted men.
