Is there Anybody Out There?
Gazing blissfully at the night sky
A million million pinpricks of light
Are visible to my eye
As they brighten the night
Unaware of the time
The vastness of the of nighttime
Overcome by the majesty
Of the galaxy
Feelings of smallness wash over me
Standing small and alone
Is there anybody out there?
