Ship of Stars
Jerky rides and beating hearts,
A thousand explosions, all at once.
All the fire burning the air
Raging down loud and clear,
The winds gush the dust away
The jerks are stronger, out of the way;
The gasses go red as it lifts the spirits
Towards the known and unknown heavens,
Spiriting away in hopefull eyes,
They said all the goodbyes.
Now a month or a year lasting whence,
For they'll return home a long time hence.
Now they go, with courage in hearts,
Prayers in souls, and eyes fixed above,
One final thrust, and now into the open,
There's still some more to happen.
The ship departs and the other pieces fall,
Diving into the Pacific; the ship shall now haul,
Minute thrusts, the perfection aligned,
The ship now docks completely lined.
There she goes, the ship O’ Captain,
The trip is done the destiny reached for certain.
Now so small and yet so big
What heavenly wonder had it been,
The islands far across can all be seen
In their tiniest of fashion, drifting amidst the blue ocean,
While you my Captain sail the ship through the greatest seas,
The sea of stars in the heavens,
The long yearned dreams of a desolate heart,
Lurking on an island looking at the stars
And thinking of sailing off into the heavens,
Amongst the infinite big of the infinitly small.
