Gravity is easy. It pulls you down a predictable path, no effort required to direct the fall, spiraling downward, a direct result of events, of a simple trip that sends you down the stairs, bouncing, breaking to the dark bottom.
Rising is not so easy, more deliberate, fighting beyond the weight of your past, of pain, of events, rising with effort, defying gravity, and spiraling upward towards the light.
