Ode to Apollo 13
Once before anything I knew
there was the night sky
with the stars, her children,
dancing everywhere in that boundless dome.
I used to look at the skies
and think far from the emptiness
that exist in outer space.
Dark matter the scientist call,
the invisble thing,
the mass that binds all
the planets and galaxies
and those worlds I wish to see
But all is just a cosmic dream
from marveling at beauty of Venus
while I wander on the dunes of Mars,
to fly along with the comets
and set the void on fire.
I dream of seeing not a setting sun
but a star being born
then to go fast forward
and see it go super nova.
All of these are found
beyond that boundless dome.
The point of no return,
into the event horizon I wish to go.
Maybe someday I will see that place
that can only see from above
for those skies are only fantasies
yet to be real.
Nowadays I can barely see the moon,
for those dreams are gone.
They no longer exist
blocked by the lights from bright cities.
