Emotional Baggage

That Man prayed to G-d

That Man gave his sins to G-d

That Man pushed it all off

On some else’s shoulders


This Man

Has no G-d to pray to

This Man

Carries his own weight

Not asking for others

To take the burden


But This Man

Is getting tired fast

He has stood alone so long

Been an icon of power so long

His insides are corroding

And he trusts no one


Another man

Found balance

He stood his ground

Shared the heavy weight

With others

Yet still held his own
