Life

i have carried this life on the bones of my back

feet hurting and splayed to the east and west

the worst pointed angrily back at me

i have carried these burdens without the ease of complaint

words lodged in a throat too parched to make a sound

sipping air just enough to make each bitter step

I have carried this weight for far too long

my arms vibrating, no longer grasping

onto anything that looks like hope

i have carried this life on the bones of my back
