Space… the final frontier, at least that what they called it in Star Trek. For me this is my first step, this where my life begins. This vast emptiness astonishes me. I gaze at the millions of stars that blind me by staring at them too much. I feel safe here, I feel that I am part of the celestial bodies that are around me and that I am invincible for I am everything that once was and will be. Many years of staring up at the stars and dreaming to be up here floating weightless through space is finally here. I wish I can say “wish you were here” but being alone here just seems right like it was meant to be this way. I take a deep breath, slowly I start unhinging the knobs on my helmet, deactivate the oxygen that is helping breath and I take off my helmet, nothing happens to me for what reason, I do not know. This was my calling, this was the reason I was ever born, to leave Earth and to come here and become one with the entire universe. I take off the rest of my astronaut uniform and I see my skin blending with the existence of this dark and mysterious place. My pale skin becomes dark and shiny, I see the my arms and my legs transforming with the space around me. My body is no longer naked but the amazing canvas of the stars of this incredible universe. I am not afraid of what is happening to me. I feel no fear. I feel serenity, I am truly happy for the first time in life. My mind is finally at peace. I am one with the entire universe. I am the son of billions of particles that make up everything… I am home.
