The Burden of Life

Posted by David Khoirul

This poem is a guest post written by Dominique Weldon, a teen writer from the city of Burlington in Lowa, USA.

The pain...
So strong, wanting to pull me in
I try to forget, let it all wash away
But it won't It's here to stay, to make sure every drop of happiness gone
It's done its job, tears spread down from my cheeks
They drown me, choking me
I die on my own sadness
Everyone gone...
