Into the Ocean of Knowledge

The sun,
Much smaller than another star

The human,
Smaller than an ant compared to the sun

The universe,
A place of vastness,

The region of exploration,
For which surely there is anticipation

When I was very young,
I asked my parents —
Why does the moon shine at night?

I got my answer in the newspaper
This just shows
How important it is to find things out

A baby
Is a tiny drop of water in all the oceans

A baby
Still has its own identity

A star also has an identity,
Which scientists are still exploring

We are finding things out,
So are our friends, family, and community
We all will jump in the ocean of knowledge waiting to be shared

We are nothing compared to the Earth
The Earth is nothing compared to the Sun
The Sun is nothing compared to the Milky Way
The Milky Way is nothing compared to the universe

What is the universe?
The cosmos, mass, outer space
Find out, and comment below
Let us all jump into a quest of finding things out
