Our Fathers In Heaven


Our Fathers who are in the heavens
Passing through star gates
Three be thy name
The fathers,
The sons,
Connected by a holy name

We are made of the ashes
Of long dead stars
Ashes to ashes
Star dust to star dust

In uncountable time
We are made up of time
And time is made up of us
Catch a star and see how far
It takes to stretch out eternity
Into an uncertainty

Length, width, depth
Still feeling there is more
Water, ice, and steam
Truth hidden behind the unlockable door

    They far above, and the reminisce them just like star dust that shine, and our mind is reminded by the voice played after the twilight, a midnight's voice_SOul (Report) Reply

    This makes me think of the old series X Files. Ah the joy of Netflix I was able to share them with my son this summer. I like the part that time is made up of us and we are made up of time....without someone keeping track of its passing.....does it even matter. I always wondered how other life in the universe calculated time. (Report) Reply

    truth is like finding a nail in hay stock? we search for the truth and search.after all searching we reralize that the act of searching for truth is the real truth.its better than doing nothing though.
