Weighed Down by the World

Tue, 07/23/2013 - 23:27 -- Ariel

Walking on searing coals

Weighed down by the world

The weight is pulling my down deeper

The coals submerging into my flesh

My chest pounding

Struggling to breathe



My pride isn't allowing me to give up

The fire rising

My life fading away

A mist

I try to hold on

The mist fades away from my clenched fist

Out of my power

Out of my hands


Waiting for the day

That the world blesses me by letting me go

To ascend to heaven
