A Heavy Weight

I don’t know what it is, maybe a lack of sleep
Too much going on and been falling so deep
Tired all the time yet I’ve sat still
For such a long time, waiting until
Something happens or I need to be free
From the dozen of thoughts nagging at me
The meaning of life and questions of love
Praying for answers from the man up above
They say: Keep going and you will find
All the things you have left behind
Never turn around and look to the past
Wondering if things would ever last
Follow the rules they are there to be followed
Open your heart even though it’s been hollowed
Mistakes are for people looking to succeed
Perfection is how you’ll get the deed
To your hard work and all the labour
No more asking strangers for a favour
Too bad it isn’t all too easy
When all the weight makes you feel queasy
The weight in your heart and in your head
How you’ll just grow old and tired instead
Cannot shift the weight, it is here to stay
Day and night, no matter no much you pray
