When Things Get Too Heavy
We reach our breaking point
It was all too heavy
The weight of it all
She wanted to let go
But it was pulling her down
Through its darkest depths
She tried to break free
It was pointless
It started to swallow her
She struggled to get out
It made her sink even deeper
She needed to let go
She already tried struggling
Then she remembered
Quicksand loosens up
When we stop struggling
She learned to relax
It let her go
She felt lighter
She was floating
In the vast ocean
She went with the flow
Of the current and the waves
It was so much easier
So much lighter
She felt the bliss
She wanted to float forever
For it was a beautiful feeling

This is beautiful, Dharrsheena! I imagined it was addressing worry. Life's worries can drag us down, and the more we worry about a problem, the heavier the burden. As the saying goes, “Worrying does not take away tomorrow's troubles. It takes away today's peace.” This was a beautiful poem, with layered meanings!
Hello, How are you? Hope you are doing well. Can I know where you from..??
A lovely metaphor for dealing with life's challenges.💙Anneliese
Very nice dear:)
This is amazing work! You’re a great writer!
Unforgiveness surely feels like this. The quicksand. The struggle. Then you release and accept where you are and how you feel. It is forgiveness at its best. Love this poem. May I read it for my YouTube Channel and link back here?
Fabulous!!! Absolutely fabulous!!!💖💖💕

This was so good, I really feel like I connect with this message, feels very familiar to some aspects of life. Thank you!
Deep poem. Big heart
Great Poem. Really liked it!
So deep and compelling. The mid-section that focuses on remebering to "let go" resonates immensely with me. We often don't even realized how clenched we are going through life until we actually relax and start letting go and feeling the floating sensation mentioned in your poem.
