Poem: Weight of
The weight of loneliness
Keeps me in place.
The weight of repeated rejection
Holds my tongue.
The weight of oppression
Nearly suffocates me.
All together they muffle my ears.
All together they blur my vision.
All together they slow my thoughts.
I hear no words of true friendship.
I feel no touch of true support.
Only occasional words and
Rare touches come through.
I read scriptures.
I was active in church.
I have faith in Jesus as my savior.
Why am I still weighed down?
Why do I still feel all this pain?
