Outer Space

Trisha K., Poet

Outer Space



What is it like to be in outer space?

Where there are no nights and there are no days

Where time just passes and we don’t know how

Where distances become too great to count


What is it like to travel all that way?

To feel the openness and the space

To pass the planets and the stars

To be so small yet go so far


Would we finally solve the mystery?

Of what it is to be caught in infinity

To have the vastness above and the vastness below

And to be in between of all the unknown
