When you ask to dive
Into the depths of my soul
It's too much too heavy
I revise my story
Into a weightless version
Of my unbearable pain
I carry my own load
But there's too many of you
And one of me
I end up carrying yours
What happened to each one
Carrying their own load
And to each one
Carrying each other's burdens
