In a little state of shock 
so many things left to pack;
She tries not to watch the clock
or gaze up at the stars tracks;

Overcome with emotion,
what an opportunity!
She made the right decision 
to be a piece of history; 

It's the beginning, this trip
rebuilding the human race;
Just a one way rocket ship, 
this chance to colonize Space
