Why So Heavy (poem)

I see you

Dealing with bills, repairs, plans, jobs, friends, family
I see you
Dealing with
Life

Look at that weight

Added on
Feminism. Social theory. Black Lives Matter
Hair
Clothes
Men
Women
Identity

Look at that weight

I want to know why
You're so heavy
But what I really want is
I want to
Look at that weight
More closely

I want to hold you
I want to take your shoulders and
Lift you
Trust me
I want to
Look at ALL that weight

I want
You
To say to me
Wow
Look at that weight

I want to listen to music
I want to be free
I want to be free with you

I want you to let it go
I want you to
Look at me
To
Stop worrying
I want you to

Look at all that weight
