The Weight

Are you mad at me?

I sent you to the hospital because I’ve been there

Been where you are now

 

I was surprised when you thanked me

Now I feel awkward

I couldn’t let you die

 

You think I am a boulder

You lean on me enough to feel the weight

Yet I still stand tall and strong

 

Others sense my strength

They lean on me

Each adding a weight

 

I begin to stumble

Even the strongest falter eventually

Even the strongest need support

 

Cracks have begun to form at the surface

I fear that these cracks will begin to run deep

I have been the strong one for so long

 

Now I need someone stronger

Or else I will be crushed

Crushed from the weights of these burdens.
