The Weight Carries...

If there was ever a moment to question
If there was ever a time to try
It should be now

If I gave you the chance to do over
would you take it without thinking
and fix every wrong you ever made

If you knew what i knew about your life
would it make you strive to be better
would it make you so sad you stop living

would you experience life for the first time
or would you swallow and breathe in deeply
convince yourself that I have made a mistake

It can’t be you who does that horrible thing
but it is and I will know and i will hold it in
I will see it everytime we meet, in every hug

I will see the real you, the you that is ugly
the you that is cruel and dominating
the one that lies inches from the surface

Nerve endings raised in anticipation
because the ugly you wants to takeover
just once so it can be freed and I will be there

Knowing you were too weak to control it
too pathetic to face it on your own
and I will bear your burden with you
because I will have lived your burden before you do

The Weight Carries...

Artist's Description

Sometimes in life we see what we don’t want to about people, and we carry the weight of their lives with ours, because sometimes we care too much.
