Falling Up!

Sliding down slippery aisle

Born to be upwardly mobile

Head down to horizontal state

Vertically settled to parent’s elate 

~~ 

Do you know god she said

Lurking in the street corner

Jumping out of her talon reach

I thought we are thus headed 

~~ 

Ruing our trespasses reiterating

Promises meant to be broken

Until we break back of vices

To reclaim spot upwards falling 

~~ 

Life by nature veers towards source

Ever hurrying towards its life force

Ironically we dive, relive reinvented

Striving to achieve bliss, falling upended
