The Lone Explorer is my tribute to Civilization: Beyond Earth in a different way. I try my hand (and voice) at poetry. It represents cosmos, it represents whatever YOU feel like it represents, but cosmos is in each and everyone of us.
He roamed the wastes, the lone explorer
He roamed the wastes, forever so
He roamed the wastes, the bold explorer
For he was lost, so long ago.
He marched the sands, the brave explorer
Until the sands, gave way to life
He marched the sands, the lost explorer
For life was there, for him to find.
With life went peace, for lone explorer
With life came need, to see and feel
With life went peace, for bold explorer
For he now fights, with bones of steel.
Why life so cold, thought brave explorer
Why life so cold, an endless chore
Why life so cold, thought lost explorer
Is lone life worth, to struggle for?
He fought the seas, the lone explorer
He fought the seas, with all his might
He fought the seas, the bold explorer
But waves don't care, for his lone plight.
Embrace cold darkness, you brave explorer
For darkness is a mistress bland
Embrace cold darkness, you lost explorer
For darkness shall now take your hand.
About Civilization: Beyond Earth:

Explore and colonize an alien planet, research new technologies, amass mighty armies, build incredible Wonders and shape the face of your new world. As you embark on your journey you must make critical decisions. From your choice of sponsor and the make-up of your colony, to the ultimate path you choose for your civilization, every decision opens up new possibilities.
