Gravity (Defying)

For JusJoJan day 12, the prompt word is “gravity”. I am also sharing this with poetry pantry #2.


Gravity pushes down on my body,

Makes me feel weighted —

It took a while ’til it got bothersome;

But looking back I see

No wonder I wanted to sing,

Large voice soaring above my body.

No wonder I fantasized about being

Elphaba, brazenly declaring

“Nobody is ever gonna bring me down.”
