I’ll never get to see the distant future.
Or understand the mysteries of science that won’t be revealed in my lifetime.
Or know if there is life out there.
Or see racism and homophobia die out for good.
I’ll never get to experience the 1000th Academy Awards
Or see Ghostbusters 4 at this rate.
My tiny eyes can only take in my tiny life
It’s a grand life and I’ve seen a lot happen
And I live better than most of human history
I get a voice and a record through the strokes of a key
But the limit is there as much as we’ve pushed it
So, the greatness I’ll miss
And the sights left unseen
Will pale in comparison to the next Kardashian wedding
