gravity

i’m trying to stand here.

this should be me, strong
and powerful enough to resist.
bracing against the waves because
i’m not strong quite yet.

this should be you, silent
and unapproachable to me now.
you stand alone now because
you have already learned how.

but the gravity here, it’s
not what physics books say.
we are not free because
there’s always something impeding us.

it’s life on your planet.
