Teetering on the Brink

Teetering on the Brink© 2018 Steve Cook
The universe is populated
In case you hadn't noticed,
Teeming with sapient species.
And here on Earth the race called Man,
The underdog, dark horse, also-ran
Teeters on the brink of greatness.
Something wonderful is emerging
New-born from birth's convulsions
So shrink not back by pain unnerved,
Keep pushing for the stars
And have the vision to embrace it.
