Keeping Me Grounded

 

There’s one thing that’s keeping my feet on the ground.

Gravity stops me from lifting and flying;

up through the sky,

out past the moon,

and maybe my home

will be reached... sometime soon.

 

I don’t belong on this planet, my home’s out in space.

Gravity, set me free!

Sometimes it feels that way where I just want to escape the world that I'm living in but unfortunately there is no running from it. Relatable poem that is very well written. Nice work, Hully.

Thanks, Reaper. This world can be a very lonely place, that's for sure.

But the world needs your writing Hul! It would be interesting, however, to read what you would have to say from the perspective of space.

I've spent most of my life waiting for the mothership to come and take me home, but so far she's been a no show.
Thanks so much for the read and such a positive comment.

Yeah, I'm always thinking of ways to escape this Town of Untruth in the Land of Liars, but my cats are happy here. Nice work Hullabaloo22.

Thanks, Craig. I'm always waiting for the mothership, but she never seems to arrive.
