Defying Gravity

God (Inspired by)

My instinct is to allow

the forces of this world

to pull me down,

thinking they are

keeping me grounded.

But I will not succumb

to the gravity of life;

I rather be weightless.

I will leap of the ledge

and fly high away

from this heaviness;

I am feather light.

I will let go

and let the wind

catch me and take me

far from here.  

I risk losing control  

because I know

the cushioned clouds

will break my fall.
