Rock Chandelier

Today
I am outweighed
By anchors ripping clouds
By upstanding conveyances
Sky bound

Today
No more dismay
No more adjectives for
falling airplanes and poking at
bruises

Outweighed
Happy to say
The sky is the limit
Willing to break rock chandelier
with fall

Outweighed
By things do change
For the better if I
grab the wheel and steer this vessel
off rocks

Today
will be that day
I’m taking back the reins
I’m melting icebergs, removing
roadblocks

Today
No more dismay
The sky is the limit
Grab the reins and steer this vessel
sky bound
