Eternal Infancy

It is hard to study sometimes
When I think about the universe
And its eternal infancy.
 
All we know is subject to death,
The spectacular and wheeling gyre
Of life in free fall.
An endless somersaulting of particles
Between earth and organism
As one ceases to exist 
So that the other may.
 
The universe will not remember us;
Time and space will reach
Further than humanity.
We cannot be infinite
As the boundless and expanding
The intangible and unimaginable
Corners of this platform are.
 
We are but small things, 
Springing from the seas,
Clambering over rocks and into trees
To no end.
 
The black of night and deep space
Is infinite and misunderstood;
There is no edge we can reach.
We will explore until we are lost.
