Are we just visiting?
This planet, I mean.
Is the Earth a starship hurdling through space?
Our bodies are the pods enveloping life forces
Until we’re big enough to crawl into the next shell
The stillness, serenity are but illusions
They’re the Gifts that Mother Earth gave us
The present days of our short, short lives
The stillness is but a feeling that will fleet upon death
When we’re reintroduced to the explosion of deep space expanding
Let us wait
Sit down in your seat
Let your trays down from the upright position
Recline your back rest
Earth Airlines fly smooth through the black velvet
Maximize your time here
So you’re awake when we arrive
As the galaxy slings us along its celestial arm
Into the Grand Destination
That lies beyond all possible human conception
