Space Cadet: Glorious Youth Preserved As An Afterthought

O’holy and high,

Shining without limits.

Do you still gaze at the

Mystery within the moon?

 

Joyous and strong,

And caught up in endings,

That were taught through movies,

To loud for conversation.

Do you stare at the planes still,

And wonder of the people inside,

And the places they are going?

 

Angered and aside,

Misunderstood,

And oh how angry

And loud.

“Forgetting is different,”

This was decisive.

Do you still wait in your driveway,

Waiting for a car to come and pick you up?

 

Hazy and blurred,

Remembered in a dream,

And happy.

Laying in the grass,

In fields, in dirt.

Do you still wake up

And smile?

 

I still smile at strangers,

I stare at the moon,

Dance in the sun,

Feel the grass with bare feet.

 

Do you still dream of the

Things we dreamed of?

 

I don’t know.

I don’t.
