Burdens I Carry


This depression just won't stop filling me
And this depression is slowly killing me
I am tired of the burdens I carry on my shoulders
Lately they feel heavier than a thousand boulders
I can't even set a foot in the damn barn without crying
I can't go in there without thinking about Dave dying
And having to cremate him in those hellish flames
I try my best, but I'll always be one of the lames
I have dreams of a great big classic Cadillac
But can't even afford to fix my hatchback
I want to write poems to a girl I am dating
But instead I write about the life I am hating
I am not recognized as a true poet
I have a torn heart and can't sew it
Everyday my mental state grows worse
And I think more and more of the hearse
I want these negative thoughts to cease
But I can never seem to find any peace
I can never get my anxiety to subside
I feel a constant tension deep inside
I have dreams of Heaven
But I'm in my Hell 24/7
I am so bent out of shape
I need to find an escape
From all of my anxiety and pain
Before I go completely insane

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
