Wings or Weights?

some people

give us

wings

others give us

weights

i prefer wings

however

i risk flying

high above

people and their problems

if i only make use

of my wings

if i don’t allow the weight

to take my focus

but simply keep me

earthbound

i can look around

and

see my fellow weight-bearers

empathize

and perhaps

help them become

power lifters

hurray

for wings

and weights

…clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other…And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.

Colossians 3:12-14 NIV

  1. Ha ha, when I saw the title I was sure that it was about using weights for arm exercise or risk getting “bingo wings!” 🙂 That’s what they call flabby upper arms in England, because they wave in the breeze when shouting, “Bingo!”
