I stand on the plains, stars floating high.
Arms raised in a V.
Let me fly, I plead! OH GOD LET ME FLY!
I fall to my knees. Tears hit the earth.
Great balls of fists pound the turf!
Tears pose the question…
What is my worth?
I ponder the gravity of soaring through space.
I may have just floated!
Did it happen? Was it real?
No… I remain at my base.
How small is my faith.
I’m merely an ant on this giant rock.
My body in peril. My thoughts in hock.
I stare at the stars.
While my soul absorbs the shock.
