It is with a heavy body
that I bring this message to you.
It is with a heavy torso
that I carry
with a promise
It is with heavy arms that I introduce my smallness.
It is with these heavy legs
that I show you my agile.
I am in this only because you are in this too,
I am not capable of more than I am equipped,
but do not let my weight fool you into thinking that I am ready for war.
Do not let my weight determine the amount of hurt you think I can endure.
I am soft and pulpous,
no rock under these bones,
I feed off ash,
and all I am,
