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.
