“Your journey has molded you for your greater good, and it was exactly what it needed to be. Don’t think that you’ve lost time. There is no short-cutting to life. It took each and every situation you have encountered to bring you to the now. And now is right on time.” – Asha Tyson
My headlights burning bright
Leaving tracks across the galaxy
And stardust in the night.
I’m shooting through a bubbling sea
Of stars and space and time
And roaring ’round the Universe
With nothing on my mind.
My craft throws flames and jet spray
Bursting flashes in the sky
Washing white the soundless borders
Of great floating nebulae.
And I feel an awesome power
And hear great melodic strains
As I bank against the farthest light
And head back home again.
Oh! to trip the light fantastic
Past the charted realms of man
Is to drink the draughts of ecstasy
And to see a greater Plan
Which guides the hand of destiny,
Illuminates the skies,
Gives thrust to our trajectory,
And validates our lives.
