Somewhere on a Different World

You would never think of stars
Those tiny, inconsequential lights in the night sky
You would never believe our sun
Is exactly like those white lights
Its golden rays shining on your face
The burn on your shoulders
Caused by those tiny blips
But somewhere on a different world

The universe too big an area
To not have other life, like you would think
Something is out there, watching waiting
Their star burned out
Also looking for other inhabitable planets
Constructing their own plan
Using their own mathematics, equations
Thinking, pondering, wondering about us
If there’s life out in the universe
But somewhere on a different world

‘Touchdown, we have confirmed life forms’
You look out the shuttle windows, waking up
You’ve seen pictures of this, of the life here
But it just seemed too far, too out of reach
But you can reach out and touch it, its real, and its here
Touch the alien dirt,
Breed the alien plants,
Make friend with the natives, ignorant
Unaware of the changes they went through for you
But somewhere on a different world

There’s no way of telling, though
What life lies out there?
We just can’t know with our sheltered minds
There’s life out there
But somewhere on a different world

Hey, 

First of all I adore the poem, really amazing. The beggining where you state "You would never think of stars

Those tiny, inconsequential lights in the night sky", it is very powerful and caught my attention straight away, making me unable to stop reading. 

Secondly, It would be PERFECT for a new magazine I am developing. Please email me at eden.zinchik@gmail .com if you would be interested in letting me feauture it :)

Best of luck, 

Thanks, 

EZ
