Under The Surface Poem 4/Hour 4

Under The Surface
By: LuvMiFreely

This growing pressure
That choking feeling in my throat
I feel it all building up in my chest
My emotions at its breaking point
My outer appearance shows no sign of damage
Not one crack present
Can’t allow myself to shatter
I’m the strong one
Ash, keep it together
I’m ready to fold
Expectations high and failure isn’t an option
I’m forced to carry this load
I buckle and bend
But somehow I don’t break
I guess I was made to handle any burden
Take on any fate
Although I take what I’m handed and never question it
Doesn’t mean it’s not heavy
And that it isn’t weighing on my spirit
I’ve conditioned myself to smile
But under the surface I’m drowning
