I had written this poem last year which you sometimes carry so much on your shoulder or back that the weight hits heavy on you which it has to be lifted.

Weight lifted

We sometimes hear

“We carry the world on our backs/shoulders”

We even carry the world in our





Yet the real question is

“Do we really need everything in there?”

One may say

“Carry only the things you need in order to survive”

I would just that

If I carry so many things

My back and shoulders go down

Too much of my life is weighing me down

I have to lighten things up

Carry the importance and leave the little stuff behind

I carry my survival

I carry my existence

I carry my strength

I carry my positivity

I carry the great part of me


I feel light

I feel free

I am lifted

I am me again, but better
