Flying

What goes up, must come down.
Unless what the force sending an object up is a father,
In which case, the child is caught still in “up”
and learns to fly

Gravity doesn’t exist until you believe in it
Especially for children whose fathers teach them to fly

Running in the yard, pulling the kite behind
And it soars, just like the little girl pulling it can

Gravity decreases the farther from the center of the earth you get
And when you’re normally all of three feet up,
Reaching to six feet in the air is the upper stratosphere
And planes soar beneath you
