Farewell From Earth
Countless generations passed by,
Complicating the annals of Mother Nature,
Each outsmarting the other,
Setting new grounds,
Conquering newer heights,
Being more perfect and a little less human.
The reddish sun sets once again,
Tired and beaten, envying man’s audacity.
A boy sat watching the night sky,
Floods of emotions running through him.
He remembered his achievements,
His outstanding brilliance,
The years spent in inhuman fitness training,
The high diplomatic circles, power parties,
Every flaw plugged, nothing left to chance.
Heartwarming family memories overwhelmed him,
A loving mother, a doting father, his dog Tuffy,
The lovely flower valley where he used to play,
His inseparable friends, his first crush.
Lumps of feelings choked him,
He wanted to leave everything, turn back.
A sudden jerk broke his thoughts,
The long awaited journey had begun.
Mother Earth became smaller and smaller,
An exciting new life awaits him on planet Mars.
