The government says they have alloys from another world
I have no clue what that means or what those would look like
They’re probably just something that seems a little different from what we’ve got already
But a little difference is all it takes for something to be “out of this world”
I hope that what it all means that it’s a little less weird for me to be convinced that aliens exist.
Because they have to, right?
How arrogant do you have to be to look at all there is, all this undiscovered, uncharted, unexplored space and say “No, actually, it’s just us. It always has been”
There’s no wonder to that, no longing to venture into the unknown to discover something that may have always been just out of reach
Or even better still, to meet that hand that has been stretching towards the infinite for God knows how long
To give it something to hold on to, a welcoming embrace
A chance to hear what it means to be something else entirely, and share our own existence in return
Maybe we don’t have to look all the way to the outer reaches of space to find that
Maybe it’s just comfort to believe that somewhere above that star-spangled blackness, someone is looking back
Maybe I look to the stars so when I feel small it can be by design
