Poem: Pioneers

By abbyweyr July 2011

Crossing the great plains of America
Covered wagons circled around campfires
Women in gingham and bonnets
Men in white shirts and suspenders crossing their backs
These are our westward pioneers

Crossing void of space
Men sit on top of contained fire
Wait for countdown to light the fire
Monitored by men sitting in smoke filled rooms
People watch and wait for our space pioneers

Challenges cross an individual
Journal entries made about
Discovering something new
Trying something new
Becoming a personal pioneer

We celebrate the Westward pioneers
We celebrate the space pioneers
Let us celebrate ourselves
Our own personal discoveries.
We are all pioneers.
