Weightless

Falling
Weightless
A sea of changes tosses me
No shore in sight
No star to guide
I crest the waves
Up
Up
Up
Flying
Weightless
How far below is the ground?
Clouds cannot break my fall
Can I fall into the up?
Drifting
Weightless
Spinning within the unmoored walls
Of all the things I can surrender
All the things I am learning to claim
All the names I am learning are mine
All the loud of my own voice
Drifting
Weightless
Maybe I will stay up here a while
Maybe I can ride that star over there
Maybe I can watch the tide renew the earth below
Maybe weightless
I am learning
Is not so bad after all
Being
Weightless
I am defying gravity
