“ISS It Safe?” (poem / poetry)

Houston, I hear you have a global problem,

Everyone’s scared, and it’s a struggle to stop them,

Things are so crazy, you’re all on lockdown,

Who knew, we’d be less confined than you now!

It’s still awesome here, watching Earth’s rotation,

But as you know, time’s slower on the Space Station,

However, it’s of the essence, so I wanted to know,

At a guess… when will it be safe to come home?

As many of you may already know, I am a huge science and space Geek! I literally binge-watch scientific programmes and space documentaries, (among other things of course).

I have huge respect for those brave souls, who are ethically pushing the envelope of our understanding, and what we are capable of.

So, I wanted to take a moment to put us in an Astronaut’s shoes, and encourage us to think about how this global crisis must look, to those who are isolated for a living, for months at a time!

I regularly watch live streams on YouTube, of the view of Earth and space from the ISS (International Space Station), it’s an awe inspiring experience, but I bet it pales in comparison to actually being there!

I hear that it really puts into perspective both how insignificant we are as individuals, a species, or planet even; but also how many once-thought “impossible” hurdles, we managed to find a way past, in order to further Humanity’s achievements, and illustrate how amazing we are.

So, remember, what we accomplish, is only limited by our creativity and belief… thus, it’s important to keep hope alive folks!

Love and Respect always,

Following Whispers.

Author: Following Whispers

Hello, I'm Following Whispers, an English poet and author who has been writing for over two decades. I'm a self-professed geek who can get deep sometimes, but I personally don't take myself too seriously, I just love to have fun, plus inspire myself and others. In my early twenties, I realised that beauty can be born out of not only love, but also pain and other motivations. The more I used writing poetry to make sense of my busy mind, the more it helped me to find a silver lining in even the darkest emotions, experiences, observations and topics; find positivity even in the face of extreme negativity; find strength when I was being forced to feel weak; and find hope that my tomorrows would be brighter. I began publishing my writing in 2018 and currently have three books available Worldwide, including my most recent release "Poems That Move You". I have bared my soul in each and every one of my poems, and I'm confident that you'll get just as much from reading them and relating them, as I did from writing them. Please feel free to look around my site and read the free poems I've shared there, after which, why not pick up a book of mine, drop by Instagram, connect with me and say hello!
