Weight of the World

I’ve seen the levee break

It’s so easy to take the weight of the world onto your shoulders when you think it’s about to tilt

Off its axis

Spinning out of control

Sending massive bodies of water 

On a search 

For new homes

Knowing humanity will be washed away

Maybe not this time

But you never know

Trying not to think that way

Trying to watch the wind blow

See the rain from the clouds

Feel the purity wash over porous souls

Rain causes mischief 

But it heals the dried out soil

That brings life

Even to you

Flesh of my flesh

Bone of my bone

Let’s let this storm

Carry on its dark path

We can rebuild under the sun
