When I look into the night sky

I see all the white stars that

Brighten all my nights up.

When I look into the night sky

I wonder how it would feel to be

Put there, are there people living

On the planets?

I wish I could throw myself

Off the edge of space so I

Could feel free for once in my life.

The planets for me mean a

Different world, a confusion for me

That I would never

Understand or would I?

I have so many questions

And confusions that I hope one day

I would get the answers to.
