This heaviness in my heart

kairal k


There is a deep sadness within me

Perhaps it has always been there only recently allowed to be seen

I feel sad for the kids

I am sad for the poor, I feel sad for the underprivileged

I feel deeply sad for those who don’t know what having options is

I am deeply saddened for the lens I have seen the world from since I came here

I am sad about it all

About me

About the world telling us it’s our fault that we experience the world this way

About the privileged telling underprivileged that they are just not doing enough to change their circumstances

I am a sad sad girl

I am sad that humanity means a deep suffering without taking a breath from it

I am sad for not having privilege to understand myself, know and sit with myself because the world isn’t waiting on me

It’s all so lonely and deep

I feel so tired.

I feel so sad.
