Man and Space: Part III; the Conclusion

Man and Space: Part III; the Conclusion

After long travels week after week
The space man could not find what he seeked
And that was Earth, his marvelous home
Far into space he was alone
No one to talk to
Nothing he could do
To search for his mother planet, Earth
All his research would be of no worth

His heart became lost in loneliness
His thinking became a scrambled mess
The fame he sought would never take place
All those hopes had left his dreary face
He screamed at nothing
He fought with nothing
All of his supplies were scarcely thin
All of his food could fit in a tin

“Why did this happen to me?” he thought
“This is not the outcome I have sought
All of my research will now go to waste
Any glory I will never taste
I have failed my life
And filled it with strife
I’ll die alone in this galaxy
Oh, had I not lived in vanity”

One day his house came close to a sun
He knew his fight could never be won
It was impossible to find home
He would die a poor man all alone
From glory to dull
He ended it all
He leaped out towards that brilliant star
He burned alive as he fell afar…

Man and Space: Part II

After a week had slowly gone by
His home began climbing to the sky
He was suddenly startled and scared
Jump out the window? he did not dare
The earth shrunk in size
None could hear his cries
He then realized the wish he’d made
His worries began to sharply fade

“How awesome!” he thought, “my wish came true!
I can discover many things new
I will become the most famous man
In all the towns and all the land
From one countryside
To the other side”
But with a wish comes many troubles
It is not all mere blowing bubbles

The scientist soared to new places
Of many things new, he kept traces
Also keeping records in a book
Of strange things, where the simple wouldn’t look
Some stones from a moon
And gases from Neptune
His adventure lasted a long while
Soon, he faced his most awful trial…

Man and Space: Part I

Man and Space: Part I

Once upon a time there was a man
Of great wealth and esteem in the land
He analyzed every moving thing
Things short-lived and creatures long lasting
From the tallest tree
To the smallest flea
He was honored and praised many a time
For his great works he viewed as just fine

One day he looked to the stars above
And thought “earthly works are not enough
I want to analyze the great sky
But I need to be able to fly
Into unknown space
Passing the sun’s face”
He thought but nothing came to mind
Of how to escape the realm of time

While gazing at a beautiful star
To the right, one quickly fell afar
He promptly made on whimsical wish
That he could swim through space like a fish
Float close to the sun
He would have much fun
He could study the whole universe
Very close up, he would be the first
