the weight of the world…

the-weight-of-the-world

watching men
carrying stones
from
the river bank
to the village
for an altar
bapa dola’s student
asked
why some men
from the village
could so
easily
manage more stones
than other men
bapa dola
said
the weight
of the stones
is changed
by
the doubt
and
fear
carried
in
each man’s heart
