in this decade

In this decade

                                                                    because it is hard

                     we will

                                                                                                            not because it is easy.

 

Light the torch, let’s sing this anthem into the night. They might not answer, maybe we’re all alone, maybe it’s just us. Just us and the stars. But we’ve got a lot of flags yet to be flown where the wind doesn’t go. The birds and the beasts stop short but we’ve got a sunset to fly past, rising over the new dawn, let’s go First Man won’t be the last.

 

If you do go, if you do walk out over the stars, let me come along so I can see Brilliance rising in this crumbling cosmos.
