LIGHTEN

Sadness is heavy
It’s a weight not meant to be borne alone.
But it weighs us down
at one moment or another.

If we’re lucky,
It’s just an unsettling force on the shoulders.
We’re not as lucky as some
and sadness keeps us rooted.

All I can do with it
Is to write it down,
Hope someone, at a time
Will lighten the load.

It’s hard to share sadness.
There must be trust,
Love and security
–A feeling of stability.

But don’t carry your sadness alone
It’ll break you.
I know it’s hard to share the heavy load
But let us lighten its looming hold.
