Feeling Powerless Literally Increases the Weight of the World

The Weight of Personality
by Rachel Hoyt

Perhaps the womb forgot to sow
Energy, the ability to see, breath
Rogue strength of the yeti
Snatched greatness lingering -  
Or maybe somehow, right now, woah 
Nabbed your whim, thatched a nest
And sat on your gusto.
Life finds strife under every leaf 
If driving with doubt in tow
Together forever as two 
Inside there's abiding powe
Ever ready to proudly sail  
Should your mind bind dread.

A new study shows that the weight of the world rests
on the same shoulders where powerlessness nests.

  1. ha. cool double acrostic...
    for me, i cant carry everything
    and i had to learn that.

  2. Thanks! I've never done a double acrostic before, only single... :)

    And... It's good to let it all go... makes you stronger.

    1. playing crambo (bouts rime) at dverse today...practicing at you place helped make that easy....smiles.

    2. Ooh, fun! I'm glad I could help you prep and even more glad you let me know so perhaps I can find time to play too. :)

  3. Very cool double acrostic, clearly you feel the power of poetry :-). Very interesting study, they keep finding out that even in psychology, everything is relative ;-).

    1. Thanks! I had a lot of fun with the double acrostic. :)


Rhyming or not, I would like a lot to hear the thoughts my words brought...
