Weight of the World

I feel the weight of the world on my shoulders.

I can feel Mother Earth dying.

I can feel her children dying.


I feel it.

I go about my daily life.

I continue on.

But I see it. I FEEL IT.

I absorb it all.

We are in trouble.

We are a nation divided.

We are a world divided.

Peace and love are a distant memory.

There is no turning back now.

Not for you.

Not for me.

No soul is safe.

We Earthlings, as fragile as we are, are doomed.

Now is the time to love yourself.

But before that, love others.

We are faulty.

We are broken.

We are screwed.

Let’s try to go out with grace and dignity.

  1. There you are! Somehow you are not showing up in my reader. Just now I was running around doing errands wondering what might have happened with Lola. Then I go here and there are lots of posts. I have to experiment with the settings of my reader, but somehow, you’re not there….

    Missed your wisdom. Need to do some deep dive to catch up!
