she wants to be above the world.

but she's still apart of it. no matter how hard
she tries to f l y – she reminds herself that
she lacks the wings.

but flight can happen
regardless.

close your eyes. and be still.
be still and know.

then take a breath. a step.
walk.

find the face of hunger you can feed.
find the face of hopelessness you can change.
find the face of hate you can love.

paint the sidewalks with faith,
pave runways for righteousness to fly.

and then take off above the world.
