she came here to fly
to an orbit of her own.
from up here in the clouds
it seems all worth it.
the tiny world below can be lived
people can love and hate
but coexist in a way that is okay.
as the air slowly left her
she made her way back.
the tiny world not so tiny anymore.
but larger than ever.
the roots grew from her arms
she branched out.
and fell in love with the breeze.
an unexpected but pleasant surprise.
as confusing and as scary as this world is
a part of her is down for it all.
she decided that the universe was weird
and she couldn’t stop smiling because of it.
