" The Great Unknown "

Serene skies with tree's that sway.
Creation is why we're here today!
All life that has been created,
Universe full of life, formulated!
A venture on the cold atlanttic,
I would think of the universe fantastic!
Man suffers from war and famine,
To evole, man must further Examine!
Rewritten the human genome will become,
The sick and the old, to dust they shall become!
Technology someday will be mighty and great!
It's this knowledge that can also forsake!
 Earth small, and the universe unforbidding,
who do we think we are kidding!
As we continue to ride time and space.
Lot's of unknowns still to face!
I will wrap this up with a question.
If we're here, then who is out there?
