The Heavens

Moon test
Sometimes I take a trip to the glorious heavens.
I can’t find the grace I need down here.
I see the shining moon as I jet away.
My life is just not right without you.

Below me is a world of dust and sand.
As the globe slows its spinning,
I do my best to understand the scene.
I fear for my friends who are trapped below me.

I do not obsess on my loneliness.
Perhaps the falling rain will cleanse my heart.
I will find success beneath the bright sun.
I will find a way to love you again.

    The picture is really cool. Did you take it yourself or find it on the internet?
