Stronger

Movement is stronger than weight
a child who carries
bricks
on their head
makes her wonder
if she is
right
side
up
or
upside down
with the earth
that’s smashing
down on her
backwards way of living
nothing wanting but for
lightness
of mind
so she’s not left behind
in the dirt
that’s directing her
do it
allowing her to come and go
so much of it
can’t quit
until there’s no more dirt left
there
just pain and death
for you
a light can’t be shining from you
just through
with you
and gone
how can she carry that
she asks herself
move
and then she moves and knows that
if she keeps going
movement will be stronger than weight
