“If you're losing your soul and you know it, then you've still got a soul left to lose”
― Charles Bukowski


I've made a ladder
With rungs of diamond and steel, I am
Invincible

But they're bent

I was carrying the weight of the world
On my shoulders
And I was too heavy to
Climb

But I'll reach the moon

Where there's no gravity to
Weigh me down
And my burdens become as light as
A feather

But five thousand pounds of feathers?

It's all the same,
I wish I had kept my feet on
The ground

But no, I was wishing on stars.
