Social Justice Poetry

Titans | A Social Justice Poem by Langley Shazor

The weight of the world
Is heavy upon Atlas’s shoulders
We should thank Zeus
That such a burden assigned
To one of immeasurable strength
Hercules
Samson
With great power,
Comes great responsibility
Like these
Resting is not an option
We have shown
We cannot control
Nor contain
Ourselves
In all our greatness
Unable to support
That which we are
Lighten the load
Even gods become weary
In welldoing
