It’s All Relative

We have been struggling
against gravity
for all of
written history.

Flight,
the ability to
get off this
so far
singular
inhabited planet.

Flapping wings,
fixed wings,
spin,
and finally just
controlled explosions.

Whatever it took,
we finally conquered it.

Only to find
that time
(our other
sworn enemy)
had been invisibly
holding gravity’s hand
the whole time.

Same war,
new battlefield.
