No longer a Burden

Written by: Drake Eszes

It is said that letting go
can be the hardest thing

The part-time lovers,
corrupted friends,
pastime lovers and 
incomplete bondings
holding final piece until the end

But I
embrace gratitude

For I have come to terms
that some will never come to terms

Their self dignity become suicidal tendency
grasping the breath of me
drowning in river Styx;
abundant dependency

Green coated envy
with lashes of solidarity;
tasting entrapment
as their new found hobby

As they let go
by digging trenches to nowhere

Mud slinging recollected teardrops
dripping invalidated errors

And I
should cry
these burdens

I should cry

I should

But these tears
know better
