When I was Young in Space

January 29, 2012
When I was young in space,
I was abducted by aliens.
And I lived on a spaceship.
I never knew my real parents.

When I was young in space,
I played with my brother who had three eyes.
I wanted three eyes like everyone else.
So I glued a googly eye on my forehead to look just like him.

When I was young in space,
My mom made us vacuum- packed sandwiches.
They were flat just like paper
Which I loved to eat as a refreshment afterwards.

When I was young in space,
My friends and I’d play among the stars
We’d have to wear our space suits before, though,
Or mom would make us stay inside and watch.

When I was young in space,
My dad worked as an inventor.
He would bring home crunchy, bittersweet rocks for us to eat for dinner.

When I was young in space
I’d go to space school.
We’d learn how to cause supernovas
And how to prevent being sucked into a black hole.

When I was young in space,
I was the only human on the ship
And the only living thing that had hair.
Sometimes Grandma would knit it into an instant hat for the cold years.

When I was young in space,
There was no gravity to hold me down.
We’d just be drifting lazily from class to class,
And learning to do air stunts in P.E.

When I was young in space,
We’d all venture out into the “Great Unknown.”
We had to make sure we didn’t get lost, though,
Or we might get sucked into the endless, vacuum darkness of the cosmos.

When I was young in space,
My dad would take us to work sometimes.
We’d feel the gooey, sticky new substances he made,
And sometimes use it for paint.


When I was young in space,
I’d savor the sweet, delicious taste of my mom’s mineral casserole.
Every bite of it created an explosion of flavors among my taste buds,
And would always leave me craving for more.

When I was young in space,
Life was very simple.
It were the little things in life, like riding meteors into the starry, endless night,
That never made me wonder who I really am.

When I was young in space,
I didn’t want to be on a planet, a star, or an asteroid.
Because, well, I was on Spaceship XA1094
And I wouldn’t change that for the universe.
