Neil Armstrong (1930-2012)

Your giant leap gave hope to all mankind:
you lived our dream, soaring among the stars,
for back in ’69 we truly thought
a glorious new future could be ours,
bright as the moon upon a cloudless night.

Nonetheless, cynics doubted your brave heart
and with your passing, something else has died,
leaving us earthbound, struggling to survive.
