When the whole world feels like its on your shoulders.

By MICHELLE SMITHPublished 6 months ago 1 min read

Even when things seem to fall into place

The worst feeling arises again

You feel like the burden, black sheep of it all

No place to fit, none at all

Feel like the burden, third wheel with them all

I'm finding it hard to find my place

My world's just been thrown all over the place

I know I just need to turn up above

Get down on my knees and lift it up

I'm finding it hard with this fleshing fighting hardcore

My emotions are all over the place

No one seems to understand this race

Help these thoughts to stop spreading these lies

Please bring me back to life

I'm feeling like a burden no matter who I'm with

This struggle just seems to keep pulling me in

No explanation, no where to go

Just carrying around this burden, wishing it would fade on....

Even on your worst days you are not a lone. Even though the feeling doesn't fade, just remember you are loved. Look to the sky above. Look around you at your support. Anything can be conquered and you just have to put in the work. It isn't going to be easy but keep your head up, you are not alone as you can see my depression doesn't let me escape either. I'm proof that you can overcome any obstacle no matter what.
