Heavy Too Long

Don’t be so heavy,
drop those burdens you bear…
They’re not yours to carry alone;

Your humanity is your heroism-
but even heroes can’t save them all.
I’ll lift you lighter –
some of these cannot stay.

All you have to do
is release them,
let them go.

And this time,
breathe only to free yourself –
let your own peace of mind
carry you far from where
you been heavy too long.
