That one fateful day

“You and I are just a tiny speck of dust in a vast , seemingly endless Universe that abounds with mysteries and treasures. Yes , to me it is true that our presence in the vastness of the Universe and this beautiful nothingness is insignificant ; this could be an understatement and unfair thing to say when there are numerous , gigantic astronomical & celestial bodies, some of which are beyond the comprehension of the human mind.

The stars we look at in the night sky may appear to be small , ignited particles with the resemblance of glitter from that distance , but how ironic it is that we are as negligible in front of these fuel consuming bodies as small grains of dust on a vast coast of an ocean where sorrow tastes salty and everything is blue. We would melt away even if we were a few million kilometres away from those stars in the interstellar world, and we would go blind as our eyes can never take in so much light and fascination. Their humongous size along with their huge distances always seem to blow everyone’s minds away each time they think about it in detail.

Ever wondered how massive our Sun is? Sun , the bright orange star which helps Earth harbour life on its surface could kill all the life known to existence in case of any changes being brought in the orbit or axis of our very home planet. It is not a coincidence that the perpetually revolving and rotating Earth somehow is still safe m and that we are all alive in a boundless Universe. The limitless heavens await us and somehow it will not matter if we do end up leaving the solar system. Why? That is , because our existence has no impact on this never-ending cosmic web, in spite of our sorrows that we feel inside with great strength.

….And so  on that one fateful day ,  we will all realised what the world comprises of , and how life justly swiftly passes you by in the blink of an eye. Our generations come and go over the centuries , millenniums and so on bringing along chaos on our terrestrial planet but at the same time contributing nothing to our supposedly infinite province. Space and time are best friends that are joined to the hip.If that does not make your head spin then I don’t know what will. Perhaps something far more shocking.”




I am currently 17 years old and from Pakistan. I love astronomy. Period. The Universe and all that it contains never fails to fascinate me , so I choose to use different astronomical terms in my essays , poems , writings etc. I hope you like my content and that my depiction of life fascinates you as well! :) P.s follow me on instagram for more :@myinterstellarfantasies.
