Space

Let us see the world from A new perspective he said. So I grabbed his hand, And we started to float off the ground We floated above cities The buildings and skyscrapers like little toothpicks, We passed countryside As kids galloped on horses We flew over oceans The sapphire glass glistening below us Over white-capped mountains And flowery meadows Until we finally reached, space. He looked at me And pointed to the earth Which was a small tennis ball now. That is where we exist. I realized how small we are How little our problems seem. The stars and planets shone around us And it felt so good to just simply let go. To erase my thoughts and fears. He held onto my hand And I held onto his We weren’t our names anymore We weren’t our identities We were just, there. Two kids letting go of who we were But in a moment We had returned back to our home, And back into society. E.B
