Hope,

Hate,

Love,

Worry,

All of these things

We carry

 

Memories,

Dreams,

Trauma,

Nightmares,

All of these things

We carry

 

But why?

Why do we carry so many things,

Is it just the human way?

We carry the good things,

And the bad things,

And we let the bad things,

Weigh us down

 

Why?

Why do we give the bad things more weight,

More weight than good things,

Which lift us up,

Which let us enjoy life,

Amidst it’s tragedies?

 

Why?

Why do we lose good things,

But we keep all of the bad?

We can remember something that humiliated us,

5 years ago

But do we remember that deep conversation we had,

With our friend?

 

So let’s try,

To let go,

Of the bad things we carry,

Instead of the good,

And try to lift ourselves up,

More than weighing ourselves down
