weight of the world

to what extent are you willing to bend
your mind so that you’ll be able to mend
the broken staircase that slumps over,
a heavy weight on your spine which
people climb, sit, or sleep on – over time
it leaves you weak, wondering the ground
of the earth, looking at the dirt with
not much thought or consideration of your
worth within your crown
