weight…

It’s poetry tuesday…life is crazy around these here parts. We’ve begun to look for places to live in Chicago, we’ve begun to pack, we keep our fingers crossed for someone to rent our place in Nashville and for the timing of it all to work out. I can’t even think of the grief of leaving yet…I’m truly living one hour at a time, trying to let things fall where they may.

This morning as I looked through poems to share I came across this set of lyrics for a song I wrote a while back and thought it might just speak right into where I’m at this morning.   Happy tuesday, friends.

Weight

when the

weight of the world

is a comforting thing

hold it all close

keeping your grip tighter still

I think

sometimes the right choice

just might make you cry

take it all in

and then watch it spill from your eyes

 

If we shoulder it well

if we just pass it round

I will carry the hope

you can carry the sound

if we shoulder it well

it’ll be well enough

to carry the weight

the weight of the world

the weight of the world

 

when the

weight of the words

are a comforting piece

hold them all close

keeping your grip on the truth

I think

sometimes the right choice

will just make you cry

take it all in

and watch as it spills from your eyes.

 

If we shoulder it well

if we pass it around

You can carry the hope

I can carry the sound

If we shoulder it well

it’ll be well enough

to carry the weight

the weight of the world

the weight of the world
