The Bearer of the Family Sky

By SparrowFeather, La Crescenta, CA

What happens
When the strong become weak?
Unable to hold the weight they shouldered
so carefully before?
Beautifully arranged on their heads
A balancing act of classical books.
What happens
When those who bore all struggles
Find their own to bear?
No one can take their burdens without spilling them,
No one is willing to try.
But what happens
When Atlas can no longer carry the weight of the sky?
What happens
When Atlantis sinks
The lives it supported also the straws that broke its back?
What happens when the world twists,
And starts spinning the other way?
Will we wander the desert, searching for strength?
