If I were an astronaut

As the sun goes away from sight and the moon and stars shoot up to the sky, my mind drifts away into another world. As I gaze up at the sky with much admiration, I think alone. I think what it would be like to be an astronaut and discover the secrets behind the world of outer space.

I would travel in a space craft to all the planets in the universe. I would discover new things about the universe and be the first man to set foot on Pluto. These are the wonderful thoughts that come to my mind as I picture myself as an astronaut. But fearful thoughts also enter my mind. The thoughts of my space craft blowing up and crash landing come to my mind. But I do not like to dwell on these bad thoughts very much. I try to focus on the positive aspects of being an astronaut.
