To Touch a Void

A short ride, away from the city noise.

To stand alone, eyes to the night sky.

Can't put down a foot, without someone owning the earth beneath my feet.

Even the air I breath, has been used.

Looking at the ultimate void around us,

to touch a piece of it and say 'Mine!',

before any other living creature.

Don't believe in heaven, but would accept a lift out there!

One of those dots of light, calling me, 'land on me, you'll be the first'.

My thoughts reach out to the vastness, one day, I will go and collect them.

They are ageless and will wait.

Only I can claim them,

so keep your land, I am already rich.

For I have touched the void.
