Almost Time
Lane, Age 11, Madras, OR

I see my mom, dad, brother,
grandma and grandpa below.
Waiting, watching nervously.
I hear them screaming
at the top of their lungs
in excitement,
and the roaring of the engine.
I smell the fuel from the ship.
I feel scared, excited
and nervous
as I click my seatbelt,
preparing for liftoff.
I taste the air
and wonder whether or not
it will be the last time.
