BURDENED

I’ve traversed the wilderness many a time,
I no longer want to wander but my feet are chained,
Metal links wrapped around my ankles, heavy 
Causing my feet to drag,
My back is beginning to give,
The weight of this bag, debilitating, poetry stories

This is a poem I wrote a couple weeks ago. I’m open to discuss the meaning. Oh, and this is my first writing post ever sooooo... don’t judge too harsh.

BURDENED I’ve traversed the wilderness many a time, I no longer want to wander but my feet are chained, Metal links wrapped around my ankles, heavy Causing my feet to drag, My back is beginning to give, The weight of this bag, debilitating,

The sun beaming on my face trying to blind me, But I close my eyes and feel the heat on my glistening skin, The journey has been long, long and full of adversity, But I continue to walk, chains on my ankle, bag on my back, sun stinging my face,

I’ve been alone for a time now, but in the distance I see civilization, I drag my feet a little faster, and i can smell the sweet scent of society, I feel my chains weakening and bag lightening, As I approach the town, I hit a wall, Confused I try again, out of frustration I pound the wall, Out of exhaustion I faint,

When I awake I’m fully chained, body one with the earth, My bag is on my chest, Desperate I whisper, “Set me free.”

I awake in a white room, A hospital, They look at me in horror, I inhale deeply, And realize that I can see, But what I see I wish I didn’t, People staring at me in disgust, I leave the room and never return, Losing the ones I love was hard, But being trapped by my mind was harder.
