Calling all Angels

Towards bright lights
and heaven, we
hesitate, weakened by gravity
unable to fly
looping through earth.
Satellites, things that catch us
make us fall.
Nets, I would love to
catch and catch those things
we lose
because gravity,
time, makes us give things up.

I hope for miracles
looking back towards satellites
(finally understanding what pull means)
I lift myself from earth.
