They Said: No

They Said: No

They told you “no.”
They said, “you can’t succeed.”
You flung wide your arms
found air beneath your wings
soared beyond expectation.
You found the moon
danced in the heavens
feasted in all the faraway galaxies.
Upon returning,
you ignored disapproval
but helped others soar
until the heavens filled
with jubilant souls swaying.
