Everyone is depending on me

by Mrs. Adams   Nov 11, 2020

I’m fine
Deep down inside
I’m breaking down
Mind and body completely drained out
I smile like everything is okay
Yes! I’m good
Reality is
I just want to runaway
Don’t look back
Everyone is depending on you
So you can’t do that
Fight back pains and body aches
Don’t show your tears
Don’t show your exhaustion
Everyone is depending on you
You got to be ok
Being pulled left and right
At the same time
Stretch so thin
Too weak to fight
No longer cheerful
I tried my hardest
But I can’t say no
Because everyone is depending on me

    It is so hard to be the rock that everyone wants to cling to when you feel like breaking up inside and this portrays that so very well.

    Its so tuff to carry the weight on ones shoulders,
    and yet being so sad on the inside, trying to prove to the world you are just fine...
