Speck Of Light - Poem by Aram Stefanian

I met with a guy who claimed to be a space traveller
Though he was an alien, he looked exactly like me and you
He said, ''Life on Earth was an experiment which proved to be a complete failure.
Beyond the galaxy life exists on many planets, but you can uncover no clue.
You're imprisoned by both the gravitational pull, and a time limit.
In the vastness of space, there are neither calendars nor clocks.
The Earth is overpopulated, and it will be perilous when you reach a summit.
In the boundless universe there are lots of stars, suns, moons, planets, and that's not a hoax.''
He asked me if I'd travel with him further to the unknown
I agreed, and as we took off, I enjoyed the silence of the darkest night
Once we reached supersonic speed without the sensation of movement, I emitted a loud moan
It was frightening when I saw the Earth starting to show itself as a tiny speck of light
