Teetering on the edge
of an alternate universe
an event horizon
that we cannot see beyond

The universe opens itself to us
stepping stones across the sky
where are we going
and where have we been?

The ultimate questions
unanswered since the beginning
we continue to search
beyond our own understanding

A race born of pioneers
exploration is ingrained in us
as we push forever outward
wandering into the unknown
