A heavy mind 

A heavy chest

What the devil signed

wasn't for the best

 

A heavy life

Not up to the test

A turning tide

A gruesome pest

 

A heavy smile 

and weakened legs

A heavy pile

That always pegs

 

Scar after scar

Bruise after bruise

A lung with tar

and a lit up fuse

 

In pain and misery

When the knife is pulled

A late realization

that the knife is dulled

 

A dulled knife may not be able to cut

though it can prevent you from mending

But only if you let it. 

 

Keep in mind...

Even the most innocent step

Can lead to a fall.
