Eric’s inspiration from CrossFit for Hope:
“The Weight of Hope”
We are bound to this earth, tethered by its expectations,
It lingers just above all the heaviness,
all that weight.
We need only to look up.
Yet we focus on the tangible,
the surface beneath us,
upon which we shuffle, plod, get by.
But Hope floats.
Like one’s thoughts materialized
around our heads, not halos, but a salvation,
if we just look up.
Because we are afforded chances to share our burden,
to receive assistance with our task.
And it is in these moments we feel the intangible—
that sensation of hope—its buoyancy.
And we are lifted by its strength.
