I feel more than down today
As the weight of this world
Pulls me to the ground
And I feel a dizziness
That only comes from being spun around;
Having my reality turned upside down.
I hide within a haziness that fogs my thoughts
And sit within a shroud of heaviness
That rings and echoes and fills my head
With stories I know aren’t true and facts I can’t change-
An enveloping history that drowns out new sounds.
I feel more than down today.
The weight of this world
Holds me to the ground
And dares me to rise back up
And replenish the hope I had once found.
