Mars, The Other Earth ( a poem of inspiration)

Updated on June 10, 2016
Mars...the other Earth...
Mars...the other Earth...

Once inhabitable, this watery planet, Mars...much more than candy bars,

Its canals and geometric forms, indicative of an advanced culture, Mars.

A globe much researched, in our solar system perched, among the stars,

Might someday this orb, be in our itinerary, among other planetary boxcars?

who knows what the future may hold for us...
who knows what the future may hold for us...

Are we all the truest extraterrestrials, here on this planetary sanctuary,

Perhaps, to come as marbles sent spiraling, Mars as our intermediary?

As our brother planet, experienced wars, revolutionary, or a mercenary,

Did asteroids strike then, changes to begin, or something extraordinary?

Our brother planet, Mars...
Our brother planet, Mars...

Perhaps they may say...who are we, where did we come from, our kind,

Perchance, we may be as much as alien, as such, and as is so defined.

Will we breathe air and be able to sustain it, on this strange new planet,

Shall we all go one day, following through as we say, is etched in granite?

One thing we shall never forget...that is to pray...
One thing we shall never forget...that is to pray...

Will Mars be our new and permanent home, no more planets to seek or roam,

Maybe just a stepping stone, one among many so shone, and more to come?

The Red Planet, now much dust and so seems like rust, as far as the eye sees,

Perhaps too late, for the fourth planet, if we all wait, this Roman namesake, Ares,

mars...the colorful planet...

      There is a distinct possibility that our own origin was on Mars. One day we will know the truth. whonu

      Sounds to me like Mars is a definite possibility. We'll have to do something eventually. Colonization isn't as far fetched as it once was, as it is definitely going to be a necessity one day.

      I believe that once there was life on this planet. Over time it perished or perhaps came to our planet and we are the real Martians. Who knows, whonu.

      A most creative poem. If there are residents on Mars I wouldn't mind meeting them.

      I have no doubts that this scientific community has the ability to do just that. Yes, one day we may see such wonders. Thank you my friend. whonu
