Nerve Wracking - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

lightning fast as it is
could not rival nerves
that let me see its wonder
in equally nerve wracking speed

the horse fast it may run
could not rival thought
that had put the car on the road
and plane in the sky

the stars in the sky that travels
to us in a million years
are there to prove
man could do the same
- a million times faster

the greatest wonder of the world
is not the stars, moons, sun
but the heads over our shoulders

from there the stars, moons, suns
and the human race soar
