I’m gunning for Mars,
Lost beneath the dust and the stars.
Got the wind in my hair
And my battle scars.

Big dreams
All lost in the city.
But they never seem so pretty
As they do from down here.

Even the tallest of towers were built from the ground,
Among false idols and doubtful sounds.
To get to the top you’ve got to start from the bottom,
And I won’t stop until I’ve got ’em.

So I’m gunning for Mars,
Halfway between the Moon and the stars.
Got to give ’em hell
For a little taste of Heaven.

Said I’m gunning for Mars,
In the black tint glass of my mother’s old car.
No one knows who we are,
But this life is ours;
Starting from the bottom,
Won’t stop until we’ve got ’em.



About humblefoot

Kyle Fisher (who often uses the alias Logan Rowley online and in his writing) has been enjoying writing since he was just 8 years old. His first formal publication was at the age of 13. He is now a spiritualist and openly queer author, perpetually searching for inspiration to create and learn more about the world around him. He is always drawn to the simplicity and uniqueness that life has to offer. He doesn’t identify with labels or socially constructed ideas about how the world should be. He believes that the world is your oyster, and that we all project our own destinies with the thoughts we choose to harbour about the universe. He is an idealistic, spiritualistic hippie who is just trying to find his place in this world, crafting each word to leave his mark, and promote love and equality among all people.
