Child Of The Universe

I am a child of the universe,
I see into the future,
I see into the past,
And know that this time won't last,
Time rapidly moving,
Time never to stop.

I see the earth in orbit,
I see galaxies and solar systems,
Speeding along their way,
The universe a vast place,
Time rippling through time and space.

Dark matter and black holes,
Time ripples through,
Space and time,
Light never in a straight line,
And gravity distorting time,
Earth's clock not in a straight line,
When traveling across the stars,

Spaceships take us to Mars,
Man now conquering the stars,
For pulsar stars shine rapid light,
While black holes take it from sight.

Planets spin in orbit,
The sun burning into unstoppable heat,
Moons and planets hostile places,
In the not empty space,
Dark matter and dark energy,
The reason the universe sticks like glue.

Satellites travel to distant stars,
Measuring light,
And helping the mission to Mars,
For man is god of the stars.

I am a child of the universe,
I am psychic and know the world,
For I see through God's eyes,
Into a universe of magic and surprise,
Knowledge of space science,
Increasing with every year,
Astronomers, astrophysicists,
And every other type of scientist,
To uncover secrets of the universe,
And invent technology,
Man conquering space,
And man living beyond life of the earth,
An earth four billion years old,
And counting,
The dinosaurs long since gone,
And man now the boss.

Aptly titled, the poem takes us on a vitual inter-galactic voyage assisted by handsome knowledge of astronomical and scientific findings of last couple of decades. Enjoyed reading this nicely crafted poem. Thanks. For man is god of the stars. To uncover secrets of the universe, And man living beyond life of the earth

This part of the poem belongs to Literature, the one above is Physics. You are an amazing poet cum professor of Physics, in my eye. Please write some more of this kind as you find time- as there are some readers on this site who are fans of space science, Theory of relativity and anything related to Stephen Hawkins. Thanks for sharing this amazing poem on the cosmos. Regards. Subhas, India
