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.
