Heavy Heart
Katherine, Age 12, Reston, VA

My heart is so heavy
Being weighed down by my past.
Being weighed down by so
Many dark secrets.
My eyes are red
From weeping,
My throat sore
From screaming.
It hurts my eyes
To be in the sunshine,
After I've been in
The dark for so long.
My hands hurt
From hanging on
Maybe I'll just
Let go.
The darkness is waiting for me,
Maybe I should go to it.
I think I would,
Except it frightens me.
Is there more to life
Than weeping, and screaming?
I'm not sure there is,
Which is why I have a heavy heart.
