Red shift

Something was smaller than it was in the beginning

Expansion of space shows there was something smaller

Like a child learning new things growing and developing, their minds have expanded

The radiation left from the explosion

The information left in the child’s mind from what was taught to them in the basic stage

the classic right or wrong

The “don’t touch that it’s hot”

The “treat others the way you want to be treated”

That’s the child’s own radiation, the information stuck in their mind

Now the distant galaxies

Proceeding to move farther away, in the red shift

Like the way a child feels as they grow up

Their hopes moving farther with every disappointment that’s happened

So she moves on from those

She focuses on the stars and galaxies instead

Finds new hope for herself

Only she can determine where she will go

In this ever growing universe
