not so obscure a place

that has seen such height of glory

and shown such depth of shame

we may be one among uncounted number

it is more likely we are not

that we are alone within this vastness

alone able to render homage to our King

without whom others seek companions

to fill the hole within and yield explanation

for the reason why we live


I was reading Carl Sagan’s book “Contact,”

which is quite well written but exhibits such a

loneliness that for all its beauty it is sad.


A pale comparison to the excitement of Truth!
