A trip to Mars, the young girl took, but in of the longest day only a moment was cherished. The winning wasn’t the best, the hunger didn’t last, and she never even recalls the smiles, because there is one feeling stronger than the joy of discovering a new planet and that is the pain of having to return to Earth.
I just got back from Mars and my mind is still up there with all those shining stars. There they are. I look up, take a quick glance, and dream of one day I may get the chance to visit my favorite planet.
I don’t know when I’ll be back again, but until then…
I’ll keep my spacesuit on every second of every minute of every day. And I’ll hold on to that feeling I got that way, when I almost took the chance I had to say…. do do do do do….. But now I’ve been cast off below and crying deep down inside, because I never said goodbye and I forgot to say hello.
Constantly filtering through my mind is the wonder of where I would be without you. Whenever I don’t feel well I think of you, pray desperately that I may soon see you, and go through my everyday travels in hope of seeing you. It is probably of no relevance to you however because I hardly say anything when I have been blessed enough to see you in fear of bothering you. More and more everyday the idea of causing myself harm appears like such an appealing option, but I never perform any life-threatening attacks, because if I’m dead I can’t see you and I can’t make sure that you are living the life you deserve. So here I am lying alone on the bathroom floor, ear to the ground trying to sing my troubles away dreaming of the next time I will get to see you. If you didn’t exist in my life I don’t know where I’d be or even if I’d be. When will you know? I love you!
Other people see me as a little girl who just listens to music all day while her parents endure a sucky life. I see myself as a little girl who helps her parents and knows her coping mechanisms by heart.
