A man launches his homemade rocket in the desert to escape the world he knows.
He had always dreamed of launching his own rocket. He had always been fascinated by rockets. When he was a child, he watched documentaries about space travel and dreamed of leaving his home planet behind one day.
So, when he finally got the chance, he took it. He had no practical knowledge of rockets, just a dream, and determination.
He spent months building a rocket in his backyard, using whatever materials he could find, and then drove to the desert to launch it.
The rocket exploded on the launch pad, sending him flying. Luckily, he landed in a cactus and was relatively unharmed.
“I’m not giving up,” he said to himself as smoke filled his lungs and tears rolled down from both eyes. His voice was raw with emotion, but it carried enough strength for the other man flying alongside him on this journey: “We’ve got another launch tomorrow at 8am.”
As he crawls away from the wreckage, his limbs intact but his pride and ego bruised, he realizes he lost his car keys.
It was going to be a long walk home.
