Moon shots

Aren’t about reaching the moon.
They are about leaps of faith
And the places we land afterwards.
They straddle the thin line between
Brilliance and stupidity,
They are the stuff of the visionary
And the delusional.
They get you into trouble
And they also take you places.
Sure, reaching for things that you perceive
To be beyond you
Opens you up to failure
And even abuse
But it also opens you up
To the the stars and all their majesty
And to a world beyond the one
You currently inhabit.
