I’ve worked so hard, long and tireless
Only doing my work for what is best.
But in me- they are disappointed
Treating me like I am a pest.
They won’t comprehend
Because they just don’t understand.
So as I walk, away from them I will steer
And silently sing my songs,
Hoping that they will not hear.
I navigate through the city,
Having to take many detours just to find a way out.
I will pretend to have not noticed their funny glares
But I will fantasize confronting them,
And in their faces I would shout
That their beliefs are based on illusions
And their ignorance is what the world could do without.
We are the modern day Astronomers.
And we will never get our way any time soon.
Because,"our heads are in the stars,
We’re like aliens,
We are complete and total loons".
The term, being down to earth, is just another lie.
Its not sensible to limit your mind to such a small place
When everything else exists in the sky
In the locus we call outer space
This topic is too vast to be solved by one mind.
Probably never in our life time
We depend on the following generations
To carry on our findings.
And maybe one day the whole world will see
The oldest mysteries
As they finish their long unwinding.
But the riddles written in the constellations
Still leave us wondering why.
And as our souls are temped by our home in the stars,
We know that soon will be our time.
So we look down the line.
Ready to give our knowledge to the next open minds.
But not a soul fills the footprints that we had left behind.
So it is time for us to remind:
That what may seem crazy,
What may seem like a waste of time,
Will one day be the answer
That will save all mankind...
