She’s Atlas

Earthquake Alert!

Shaky hands expected to hold up the whole world and let it spin and spin

While she stands shaking for fear that she will never be enough.

The world spins by while she lifts the world pushing herself down deeper and deeper into nothingness

She cries she’s losing herself the more she holds up the world

The smaller she gets and the more she shakes

Until the world drops

She’s as small as she’s ever been but without the weight of the world upon her she can finally grow
