Space Race

Take me on a silver rocket-
ship ride to the moon.
Let me see the earth and
ocean tides in May and June.

Fly me over Jupiter
and swoop me over Mars.
Show me all the rings and rocks,
and let me wear the stars.

Let's go on past Venus;
I don't care what they say.
I want to touch the universe
and taste the milky way.

I want to fly forever
and never touch the ground.
Maybe then I'll find myself
and lose what I have found.
