What is the weight
of one flake of snow
of one grain of sand
of one thought or worry
one lie
one insult
one more hate filled word

What is the weight?
of one
when they build
one upon the other
when you have heard
enough hate
to fill the beach
with sand
to fill the mountain
full of snowflakes
the weight
is simply
too much
for one heart
to bear.

But courage
and love
a touch of trust
and faith
when kissed by the warmth
of a loving smile
can melt the flakes
can dune up the sand
and give
a beautiful sanctuary
in which to find
quiet respite.
