High in the Mountains

High in the Mountains

I’d never before set foot
beyond the boundaries of my own history
never challenged the stars with Africa

I was using the weight of my wings
as a tired excuse
for living within limits

walking when I might fly
holding my breath
till I grew too heavy to move

But you never thought
to hesitate
to invite me along

Now high in the mountains
a kingdom in the sky
is becoming our home
