We want to look up
up higher than we’ve ever been
or seen before
past the sky
the stars and the moon
beyond the shining rose twilight
a place unknown
where there is no shame
we don’t have to worry
about our parents or our
the world will seem to stop
just for a second,
a moment of held breath
for us
to explore the light air
to be alone with our thoughts
and tears, and failures
to open our eyes, and see
a new life, where there is no past
a blank tape
and maybe, an outstretched hand
to grab onto, and squeeze-
and be pulled up, through the impossible
taking a minute for ourselves
knowing, this time
we won’t let go
