Alone, I traverse the sky.
I have left my home beind,
the place of my birth.
I possess a power which no mere mortal cannot.
And with this power comes my duties,
I must leave this planet,
In search of a new home for mankind.
My days are filled with endless sands.
I am alone on this planet,
Only I have the gift
of being impervious to the elements.
I carry on my duties with diligence,
Sending my findings back home.
Everyone knows of me,
yet no one knows me.
I am alone.
I sing Happy Birthday to myself,
marking the slow pass of the years.
So far there have been seven.
I dont know how much longer I can carry out my mission.
All of mankind is counting on me,
to do what they cannot.
But I am tired.
I am not immortal.
May I rest in peace in this desolate terrain.
another being will arise,
an explorer with the power to go even farther than I have.
My battery is low,
and it's getting dark.
