The Weight of the World

“Emptiness, by its very nature, is weightless – yet the emptiness inside me somehow carried an unbearable weight.”

In my last post, I talked about the relief effort I joined after an F5 tornado hit Oklahoma.

It was around that time that the storms of life struck in my own heart, leaving behind a path of destruction.

My heart is heavy
With the weight of the world
Crashing down around me
A blistered hand
A broken levee
Heaven knows I carry
The weight of the world upon me

-Written the night before I left
for the tornado-relief effort
