Cosmic Reflection

Every night when I gaze up at the stars,

I have the feeling that the time is drawing nearer to me—

When I, magnificently, turn into one of them.

Observing the stars from Earth is incredible, isn’t it?

However, the notion of becoming one, though,

Might not be viewed as fantastic by everyone.

There are trillions of stars in the vast cosmos,

And maybe some of them hide intelligent beings—

That surpass us in mental heroism.

These beings, ‘capable of instantly understanding our trajectory-

But remain indifferent,

Some even with null fondness for any earthlings.

We may be gradually turning into the star; or maybe not,

It’s all about our logic-centric hypothetical mindset.

But for now, we are yet to meet those superior intelligence,

After all, until now, it’s just a cosmic reflection of our mind.
