Left with traumas that are immensely heavy,

Too frail to keep dragging them along.

To flee is not an option

My woes have quick legs to chase me,

I fall to the ground in exasperation,

To wait for an able-bodied hero

That will never come

Thank you for reading.

Dear Self

Dear Self,

I am so sorry. I’m so sorry that you tried so desperately to fix others, while your own hands are shaking.

I’m sorry that I didn’t give you enough time to heal, that I let you seal the wounds of everyone else, while yours is bleeding.

I’m sorry that there were days when smiling hurts but you forced yourself to laugh so that no one had to worry about you.

I’m sorry that you gave all your time and effort to people that didn’t give the same back.

I’m sorry that there were nights that you cried yourself to sleep and no one bothered to understand why.

And I am so sorry that I didn’t love you, the way you deserved to be.

Thank you for reading.

💞 Pam
