New worlds are on the horizon,
new places, new wonders to see!
I long for celestial treasures,
I ponder: Is this future for me?

Humans are such beautiful dreamers,
yet prone to such terrible deeds.
Justice and peace are elusive,
my heart for the downtrodden bleeds.

My faith keeps me sane and secure.
Still, I'm human and struggle with doubt.
Will I see the change in my lifetime?
Or will I die before 'comes about?

Once cosmic issues are settled,
and all is then right with the world,
I'll fly to the moon and beyond,
and search for His new hidden pearls.

Amazing job with this one. 'Humans are such beautiful dreamers' is my new favorite poem line.

that line and the next one are actually paraphrased from the movie "Contact" with Jody Foster.
