THE WEIGHT

(so this is where they keep it?)

 

 

From the outside,

The fences are too tall for cattle,

And between them,

Are too many miles

That cannot get out.

 

And inside,

Are buildings too tall for farmhouses,

And between them,

Are walls too thick

To protect of sounds.

 

And inside,

Are boxes too strong for a magician,

And between them,

Is a puzzle too hard

For Newtonís physics.

 

And inside,

Is a secret too dark to be comprehended,

And with it,

Is a weight too heavy

To ever be dropped.
