A Canister Full of Secrets
Tumbling through space since the beginning of time
Is something no one can detect with telescopes or the naked eye?
An object that may have value to all of us
Perhaps it’s something from God sent with the minimum of fuss
It could be Christ in a last bid to save the world
Or an alien from another planet sent to warn us of our peril
Travelling vast distances over millions of light years
Before slowing down as its final destination nears
Time is running out for us to change our ways
The rehearsals in this life are over, its time to move on to the next phase
How many chances must we be given to amend our past mistakes?
To question whether we are indeed the real article or just glorified fakes
To the vast majority of us tomorrow will bring yet another dawn
And just in case it doesn’t how many out there will care enough to mourn
