Are There Aliens?

Francois Groenewald is an author from South Africa. He writes poetry in his spare time.

Are There Aliens?

Yes my dear

here we are

We are here

and you are there.

But what is it that we do here?

Do we pray?

Yes we do.

Do we eat?

No we don't.

Do we lie?

All the time,

for what is a lie but a speech made incorrectly.

Just like them.

And just like you,

they seek deliverance from it.

From what, they say?

From it.

The pain.

Life is how you feel.

That's it. No more.

For how can you live forever if you feel bad inside your body?

We don't...

feel bad that is.

But we do for our hearts that melted long ago for the human race.

And all that we do is help you come alive.

So now here we are deliberated and strong but also weak and small

compared to your large planet.

What of it?

Well we decided to take a person at a time.

Record their pain,

and erase it for them.

That is what we do here.

And if you don't like it.

We won't go.

Because we do.

Like it, that is.

And what of this dream this silly dream we both live in?

Well it is decaying my friend.

Because you feel like horns.

And all I can see is a planet that feels bad.

So why do we help you?

Because you feel bad.

That's all.

Thank you.
