Feebly, we leave our Terran home

Feebly, we leave our Terran home
controlled by space-time's laws
in fragile boats that buck the waves
of nature's callous cause.

Small islands that are close to home
are far as we can see
to go — for now we are but slaves
of Relativity.

The day may come when we need roam
beyond our nearby shores,
when Earth becomes but our own graves
and nature shuts the doors.
