The light that shines from stars in the darkness
is not new when it reaches our eyes.
It travels at the speed of light
But that's not fast enough to make it now.
That light could be hundreds of years old.
The time and space of stars
There is no human comparison.
All the science I have learnt
Can not make up for lack of understanding
or stuff I do not know about Astronomy and Physics.
This gap of knowledge
is my only defence for ignorance.
But I do know that our sun is only a minor sun
it will not go super nova, its not big enough.
It will not explode in a great brief display
simply expand when the hydrogen runs out
Engulfing Earth and extinguish all life
Reaching beyond the orbit of Jupiter
Then slowly shrinking eventually becoming a white dwarf
dim little pinprick of light
in the void between other stars
And all that will take millions of years.
Somehow all the glory
All the pain and suffering
all the wars all the love and hate that we humans
have experienced in our history
seems a bit insignificant when you think about the fate of stars
