dragging you down
holding you back
like walking through treacle
feet sticking in tar
leaning in to the storm winds.

Yet you go on
you battle through
fight forward
looking to the world
like you are ‘fine’
that you are coping
not because it’s easy
but because you must.

Just because you cope
doesn’t mean it’s easy.
Just because you smile
doesn’t mean all is well.
Just because you carry it all
doesn’t mean it’s not heavy.

Be kind to yourself!
