* * * * * * * 7 New Stars

* * * * * * * 7 New Stars
Honoring the crew of Columbia

Seven new stars
Seven new lights
Today I became
a better man in my life

Call it inspiration
Call it remorse
Whatever it’s called
I’m changed

As a boy who loved the sky
the stars, the planets
the Earth
What I’ve been thinking is how
it might have been me

And how incredibly lucky
and proud
and heroic I’d be

to have lived a dream for us all.


(From the book Kairos)
