Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “weigh/way/whey.” Use one, use ’em all, bonus points if you do that last thing. Enjoy!


The world weighs much
When it lies atop your shoulders
Crushing you into the earth
Trying to make your way
In this life
But offloading the troubles
That don’t belong to you
Those that you cannot affect
Allows a taller stance
Head raised to see
The beautiful horizon ahead
Not stumbling blocks
Or possible pitfalls
In front of your feet
For if you are looking up
Your steps are bigger strides
And you will leap over
That otherwise focused on
Turn into mountains
Keep that chin up
