Heavy

Heavy
This feeling that is
weighing over me

I look over my shoulders
to see if it's the world rotating upon them

but all I see 
is that monkey

Glaring with his 
red eyes
snarling
gnashing nightmare teeth

that
will
chew
right
in

Heavy
this burden

This burden 
I am...

  12. Yes, we feel burdened in certain areas of our lives but we always reevaluate things and be ok with letting somethings go.

    Such a beautiful poem, sometimes we have to realize that we are the one who's making our lives heavier when it shouldn't be..
