The Arrival

The arrival scifi poem by Rebekka Kaur

I was on a Galactic

submarine which was

floating through the

avalanche of dark matter,

A place meant for no

human ever,

So fragile, I thought to myself.

For us, it was more like

a defense line between

universes, something

which we get to cross often,

Just like now.

"Humans call them space

travelers or astronauts."

My mother said, as i

escape the dark caves of the universe

for one last time.

"I know, will keep that in mind

while I live my life down there."

That was my journey towards the earth! Escaping the dark caves of the universe; the dark matter for the last time. You know when we are on a road trip to someplace and we pass through some dark tunnels once in a while. That's how it used to feel when our spaceship used to make its way through the dark matter. I always enjoyed it very much. The dark thick caves holding a plethora of secrets in them. They were always special. My mother, she knew I would miss space that's why she told me for the last time that humans call them space travelers or astronauts.
