The Sad Girl's Burden This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

February 13, 2018

Take up the sad girl’s burden,
Send forth the good received,
Go send your joy to exile,
To serve depression’s greed.
You live, a jaded outcast-
Your newfound, sullen style
Has cast a new breed onto Earth,
Half heathen and half wild.
Take up the sad girl’s burden,
In terror you abide
To veil the streaming tearstains
And throw your laugh aside.
In screaming underwater,
You find you’re bound in chains,
Then work in anxious misery
For nothing but your pain.
Take up the sad girl’s burden,
Don’t trust in any god,
Depression is your empire,
So put up your façade.
Come now to search your future,
Come now, forget your past,
Destroy their expectations,
A proud iconoclast.
And take the sad girl’s burden,
Desire, be deceived,
Yes, this pain is ecstasy,
But will you ever leave?
