The Loneliest Planet


A pale blue dot hangs in the distance,
suspended in the darkest void.

Such a lonely world,
lost in time as it hurtles through the unknown on its aimless journey.

So far away,
deafening silence envelops this speck in the cosmos.

A world in constant motion,
soundless as it whips around at breakneck speed.

In the grand expansion of infinity,
merely an atom is the lonely planet.

Only a single cell,
it is but a part of an incomprehensible organism.

Within a universe of unimaginable scale,
the pale blue dot is all alone.

For the magnitude of infinity is out of reach,
the universe knows of us not unlike a single cell on our own being.
