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.
