Me, Myself… And Everyone Else

Just a young Irish girl, looking for somewhere to share my poetry.

The fifth in my Seven Deadly Sins/Seven Heavenly Virtues series. Ooh, I’m excited… I’m almost finished the sins part of this series, and I am almost ready to start posting the virtues.

Life is just
Too much effort.
Even the act
Of living
Takes so much willpower,
She has lost the energy
She needs to survive.
Crawling along:
The simple
Everyday
Act of breathing
Is unbearably laborious.
She is trapped
By the weight of
The world
On her shoulders.
It hurts
To smile.
