The Universe Is Not Safe - Poem by Shalom Freedman
THE UNIVERSE IS NOT SAFE
The Universe is not safe-
There are great explosions,
And long impossibly long darknesses,
Unbearable extremes of heat and cold-
Venturing out into it
One little step at a time
Many of us will die-
The Universe is not our home
And if we get out there somewhere
It won’t be for certain or forever.
It won’t be easy,
And we humans will not love it at all.
