The load was getting too heavy.
Knees buckling under the pressure that was self imposed.
She wasn’t supposed to carry the weight of expectation like this.
But here she was, tumbling towards the hard truth.
Clinging to a burden that would slip away as soon as she would decide to let it go.
But clinging is what you do when you fall.
Reaching out for what’s near.
Making what she allowed close to her matter more than she realized.
Because it would be the thing that she reached out for when life brought her to her knees.
