An Astronaut

Tiffany GomezMay 9, 2024

Floated and floated
Out of this word
Calling and calling
Without having internet
Looking for details
Looking at the sky
Time passes days pass
Growing and growing
Is an astronaut
just a kid dreaming?
Jumping, walking without touching the floor
Being an astronaut
for just telling scientists
what is up in the sky
Seen the sky
Seen the stars
Seen the moon
More and more days pass
For just getting old
Exploring and exploring
People in the news see what we do
Mom looking up the sky remembers when I was a kid
Waiting waiting for when I get home
