There are a million stars in the sky,
Each young and bright,
Daring me tonight
To go forth.

But on the outside they look dim,
And very, very far away.
To get to them all
I must travel very far away

Each one is labeled with intelligible words
And I must get there.
To get to them all
I must graduate from Earth.

Each one is my future,
But how can I be sure?
There are a million of them
Seemingly very far away.
