To Boldly Go - Poem by James Tipp

Shall I search the depths of space
As did the men of old?
Seeking for the one to come
Bold enough to follow.
To journey to the unknown;
Because they felt the time was now.
For our generation the stars have become
The source of mystery again.
They are still immeasurable
Yet far more knowable.
We have stood upon the night-light,
Know the heat of the sun.
We have set our hearts and minds,
Across space to the Milky Way and beyond.
Recognised our own minuteness

Now we are the centre of nothing
Yet somehow now are the centre of something
Like the psalmist of old
We recognise the stars are infinite
Like the grains of sand.
We have looked back upon
Ourselves from the heavens
And know that we are beautiful.
So we search and seek.
Ever conscious of our need to encounter
The one whose word became flesh
And dwelt among us,
Full of grace and truth.
Ever conscious that in the vastness
You are mindful of man.
