~~~Dedicated to those who believe in Extraterrestrials~~~

There are those who say, "I believe in extraterrestrial images
I see at times in my mirror looking back at me.
I  scream, shiver, cover my eyes;
yet, I cannot escape their bloodcurdling screams."

Dear, God!  I hear a voice somewhere saying, "Come with me
to a dismal place where restless souls reside
far beyond the laws of facts. We're called inhabitants of the
unseen world;  yet, we leave no tracks."

"Oh, I hear and can see you crystal clear!  All of
you are malevolent creatures, both short and tall,
with grotesque features.
Your existence goes beyond human eyes,
thus appearing to us only in our imaginative minds."

"Those who believe in you say, 
'I see your images in my mirror when sleep eludes me.
Yet in the dark night,
some appear, but others won't!'" 
As for myself, I say,
"Please, God!
Help me to only see your face in my mirror."

But, as I walk along the once bone-chilling pathway of yesterday,
I see no extraterrestrial images; nor, do I hear the moans,
groans or sounds I once heard.
I raise my eyes toward Heaven; then, these words I whisper,
"Glory Hallelujah--Thank you, God!"

Extraterrestrials? Hmm! The big question at this point is not whether or not we have these anomalies, but what's causing them? Is this something natural that gives us a window into another world? Is it something secret and man-made, or something that's better left alone? As for myself, I believe in things that go bump in the night, rather than extraterrestrial images. Walk the pathway of your choice, my friends. As always, thank you for reading my work. Best wishes wherever you and God Bless. Special thanks to Seshadri Sceenivasan for the awesome artwork.
