Lady Justice

Collection 2

"The World I Can’t Contain"

I learned all right if you don’t take the stairs

You won’t go anywhere,

And escalators are no work at all.

 

Gravity’s pull is daunting,

Yet, yearning for the light of heaven is stronger.

Who digs holes without special needs?

 

Any pleading we hear is only for hope,

A sizing of the scope it takes

In order to spring as a sprinter

 

And forget constrictions that bind like skins.
