Conservation of Momentum - The Challenger

copyright by Leslie Ann Miller

I can only pray, for the sake of the children
and the families
and the people who cared,

when the pieces came tumbling
back to Earth
engulfed in their own living Hell,
the souls of those on board
kept going up.

Let the laws of gravity be defied,
and the soul unbound by mortal physics.
