Mars or Bust

Poetry, Day Four: Journey

Today, write a poem about a journey. You could channel your excitement about a trip you’re about to embark on (or just returned from), comment on the mental progress you witnessed someone make, or focus on the struggles, pleasures, and extreme emotions that travel can bring about.

They are sending me to Mars

on a Ship that won’t return

I really don’t mind

the plan seems fine

I’m going to die far away from Earth.

 

Earth is just reminder of all that used to be

Nothing is the same and everything has changed.

Who wants to live in an open Grave?

 

Earth is like a lost love

you find many years later

she’s used and worn she’s hacking up her lungs

and

she

looks

and

sounds

like a car that’s been parked to long.

 

Mars is cold and dead they claim

but I don’t believe that’s true

the ground is red sometimes the sky is blue

Mars can kill you in a breath.

 

They are sending me to Mars

and I will never return to Earth

the plan seems fine

I don’t mind

dying far away from Earth.
