Lofty Even After Annihilation

There is no what if
or would have/could have/should have
that can hold us back
or keep us down
if only our eyes
remain focused
on the future

Frogs will never have wings
and that’s why
they land
hard on earth
every time
they leap

But we are both
angel and animal
and so it is our spirits
that ascend
in flight
not our bodies
not this flesh
not our bones
