Zombie-like Life

I’ve kept it all in, all the pain and
the shame of being mistreated and deserted
by loved ones, people are so quick to judge,
judge what they do not understand; often too
harshly they spill the beans.

I’ve carried heavyweights on my shoulders,
weights other people would’ve probably
run away from sometimes I wonder if
the struggles were even worth
the undesirable package deal I’ve received
I am a living zombie, alive today
but feeling dead and buried tomorrow.
