Nothing there seems to be
so beautiful, amazing, so vivid
as here, the place we
live in, which we still
don’t know everything about (un)fortunately

However, we are not the
only children of stars, as
a lot of, no less or
even more, astonishing inhabitants
can be found amongst them

There, from opposite edges, space-time
stretches forming the fabric of
the Universe or multiple ones
following the string theory being
for many something beyond imagination

All of this makes us
the explorers of the past,
counting hundreds of years we
call the light ones, without
any knowledge what's happening now

There are plenty of yet
undefined threats or wonderful challenges,
so we should never be
bored trying to understand today's
mysteries to enrich mankind's wisdom

Once upon a time, so
needed answer will be given
to us. The others we'll
discover. Then the truth of
stars becomes something naturally undeniable.
