Climb the highest mountain, punch the face of god


Let me tell you something about this world.
Its possibilities are infinite,
As are the lives sustained here.

It's been a long time since
We all glanced up to the sky
And realized that it goes on forever.

Where is forever in the solar system?

On morrow next,
Will you arise too early
To watch the big world awake?
Saying your prayers
As the stars bid you farewell,
It's cold but not freezing,
Will you be up that early?

Our world is more than giant.
Imagine it, the size of a pea
In a universe that just
Keeps on unfolding.

Just appreciate it,
Take care of it
Like it were your children,
Though we are its offspring.

Because, when it's gone it's gone.
