IMMOBILIZING BURDENS
(8/13/16)

great
tragedies

accumulated
instances
of a minor
aggravations

or at times
just the overwhelming
realization
of life

are weights
for some
too great
to endure

we wish
to remain fetal
in a dark place
until the emotions
pass

but society
does not gives us
that option

we are
pressed
to move

to continue

then when
our interactions

our decisions
become suspect

they begin
to understand
our need
to remain
unseen

suffering alone
in the shadows
of our undoing
