Lead weight

Sometimes I feel like a balloon

on a string.

Not one filled with helium

that soar up as high

as they can go

but at least

I get off the ground

to bob along

quite happily

being neither high

nor low.

But then you come along

with a big lead weight

and a lot

of hate

and you tug that string

bringing me flat down to earth

before you stomp


and remove my ability

to fly.
