So far, no longer
With technology and mind stronger
Galileo could never dream
that in reach was the moon's seam.
With my own hands
and Armstrong's stands
the Moon--light years away
is no longer just child's play.
Stars that seemed in a whole different world
is now dissected and unfurled.
Defying gravity's 9.8m/s^2,
it's blanketed on God's magnifiicent inky vision shared.
Astronomy, physics, and biochemistry, studied
soon in my hands and mind all the mysteries will be unmuddied.
To be an astronaut
is harder but more amazing than I had ever thought.
Wait for me Mars,
I'll reach you once I past capture all these stars.
