we mostly live in valleys
on a stable plot of ground
and whisper to the mountains
that have gathered all around
our voices full of wonder
yet we find no words to speak
for language has no meaning
as you're carried to the peak
we find we're creatures, earthbound
for mad gravity is king
with fingers curled around us all
restraining everything
our hearts yearn to go soaring
till our oxygen is weak
the apex leaves you breathless
as you're carried to the peak
we gaze up at the sky
and ponder what may lie beyond
perhaps a million galaxies
where other life has spawned
the gift of flight from angels
is an offering, unique
you'll see a glimpse of heaven
as you're carried to the peak
