Jean Philippe Gibson

Burdens






I feel the burdens of a whole generation

Flashes of greatness twinkle off in the

Distant light.

Pain so deep I wonder if there is happiness

I could ever gain.

In my mind elaborating on expectations that

Seem so ever farther away.

My hearts pumps desolate tears of blood.

The sadness flowing through my veins.

Spirit soaked in burdens like a bad storm

That just want end.

Burdens....Burdens......Burdens.....
