Have you ever stayed up at night

Wondering what could be

Beyond the clouds

And the great big sea?

Beyond what you may see

Beyond what you may hear

Nothingness from Here to There

Have you ever thought about

How the universe is always expanding?

Are enemies evading?

Or are they simply invading?

With invisible guns and invisible shields?

And nothing to protect

And nothing to hold dear?

What is beyond the moon,

The sun,

The stars?

And is it so very far?

That nothing can reach it

Nothing but nothing

Nothingness and wonder
