Photo Challenge: Weightless Heart

Sketch of a heart with wings, with lens flare

Is your heart as light as a feather?
Can it float up high on the wind?
Or does it hold on to secrets
buried deep within?

Will it be weighed down?
Is it broken?
Does it feel guilty, icy, sharp, or mean?

Can you shake loose those stones inside it?
Can you smooth them, soothe them,
reach in and remove them?
Throw them away and make your soul clean.

Do this
So your heart can fly free.

    1. Thank you, Antonia! It was inspired by the ancient Egyptian belief that your heart was weighed against a feather when you die. If light, you get to enjoy the afterlife, if it’s too heavy, a monster eats it and you cease to exist. I’m glad you enjoyed it!

        1. I try to remind myself not to hold on to anger or guilt. Not out of fear of a monster eating my heart lol, but because it’s bad for mental health. It’s a struggle sometimes…

I'd love to hear your thoughts
