The sun glimmers so far away;
The moon glows closer- yet still distant
The fire burns brightest where I stay,
But to feel the warmth of eons today
Refreshing and so different;
Is a price I can't manage to pay!
Upon decades of reflection I have bed
Towards centuries of warmth- now
For millenniums of darkness I have fled
The era of shadows still lays ahead;
The epochs of light disallow
Passage of books all have read.
I set sail towards the big red star
Facing astonishing winds, I lift the anchor.
Years pass yet I’m still too far-
And the gentle winds, so careless they are
And careless indeed, I asked to go faster
Betray, Beware, Believe the scar,
I see, I feel, I taste the wave
I hear a myriad splashes decorating the hull
I can smell the danger that I so crave
This rugged trail that I shall pave;
Risks express, exceedingly colourful
This very passage I must engrave.
