The World Leaning On Your Shoulder















You know all their stories but none of their stories know you.

And you've felt all their pain but their pain has never bothered feeling you.

So you take their medicine. Even though you've had too much medicine.

I can't even express how much I love this.

your shoulder hurts
but you continue to let them lean,
leaving less time to find your own prescription.

I think what he meant by the last line was that you feel stuff from other people all the time and they always expect you to listen even though sometimes you've had enough of listening.

and we've swallowed our words because they won't stop talking. and we've worked overtime because they won't stop taking. and we've turned off our phones because they won't stop calling. and we can't question because they won't stop asking.

I've heard all their words, but their words have never bothered hearing me.

I've embraced all of their hearts, but their hearts have not embraced me.

And I've accepted all their perspectives, but their perspectives do not accept me.


I've got bottles and vials of cures, but not a single solution. So, no, I'm not taking their medicine anymore.

Why do I feel such anger towards you today?
Why do I feel such great disappointment?
You bottle everything inside.
You assume everything.
You push everyone away.
What are you so afraid of?

You are your own medicine,
you are just too stubborn to take it.

I know it well. Thank You. It's a pleasure.
