I have stood on the tips
of mountains and volcanoes
and looked down on a world
in such a state of disarray
and madness and realized
that the people who try
to pull you down do not matter.

I have led my body into the depths
of rivers and lakes and oceans
and marvelled at the way I float;
how I rise to the surface regardless
of the weight people have put
around my neck and left.

I climb and I fight and I float
but you, my love
you will be the one to fly
and the world will wonder how
anyone ever tried to hold you back.
