Can't Carry This Weight

Transfer to my Diary

Can't Carry This Weight

I keep a diary so that I can transfer some of this energy to the pages.

It is too much for me to carry alone.

Too heavy for me to hold.

My emotions have been too fragile to handle.


proceed with care.

I want to escape the weight of my worries.

Discard the ones that make me weak.

Double the ones that make me strong.

Some days my bed is the only thing that can hold my weight without breaking.

I wish I could surrender.

Eliminate this pain forever.

That can't be the only option.

Give me every chance to make me better.

Help me to reflect healing.

No weight whatsoever.
