A little pressure with a twist,
might seem painful at first,
but maybe it will do my soul
What’s the worst that can happen?
The tension acts upon you more,
the longer you carry it.
And catharsis takes shape in many different ways,
but it’s never a walk in the park,
never a spring breeze.
It won’t come easily,
but if it did,
would it be worth it?
Only when empty
is the vessel most useful,
put down what you carry
if it has become too burdensome.
You are stronger than you know,
without what holds you back.
If it must hurt,
and sometimes this is so,
know that the pain is so much better,
than what preceded it.
