To the Stars

No rain has ever drowned me
or ever washed me away.
No fire, lightning, or entropy
has deterred me or led astray.

I’ve climbed the tallest hills
and trekked the longest roads,
yet through my power and will
I stand in reach of my goals.

Not everybody has made it
as far as I dared go,
and nobody could have prophet
how much more there is to behold.

Now, looking at the sky
with iron in my heart,
the only journey left to try
leads up and to the stars.

I know not what I will find
or if I’ll ever return
- but by grace and a soul divine
the world will know my worth.
