Gravity

Gravity

Trust gravity to keep your feet on the ground

Looking down, you fail to see the attraction of the earth, of life on it, despite the many ants, ladybugs, tiny flowers, and micro-organisms busily mixing things up.

Being a distinguished person, you don’t lean to better distinguish those elements of life, for fear of exposing a side of yourself other forms of life dislike.

That is gravity.

Fighting gravity keeps you out of the grave
Until it lowers your eyelids
Like the end of the day
With the sun going down
And the moon rising on the other side.
