Future Father

Post by PoorMonger » 07 Oct 2015, 21:43

I'd like to be a father of something in the future;
Though as to it's nature – I remain unsure.
Should it actually be born, I'd like to see it grow.

Having often marveled at spherical form
I've encouraged an axis to spin
On a passionate whim.

If only I could baby-talk a star into acting
As a surrogate Sun ;
Perhaps it could be done.

In a place not so far, far, away
I've encountered an alien concept -
On the outreaches of human logic.

They'll say I've birthed notions, not nations.
All may deny the tangible thought
That idealistic hands have wrought.


I'd like to be the father of something in the future.
And so I turn the page
And name a thing – in the blank expanse of space.

"If only I could baby-talk a star into acting
As a surrogate Sun ;"....
I don't understand that and also it is 'to its nature' not 'to it's nature'
I like that the persona likes the idea of fatherhood. It's about time men love the idea of fathering something or someone so thank you for sharing this.

I like this one too. The rhythm is nice.
