Weight

I carried around a weight in my heart,
So heavy that it made me low sometimes…..
Even if I really wanted to smile.

It was a weight that was accumulating with time,
It was getting heavier, the longer I carried it around.
But still I carried it around, till one day…
The heaviness in my heart weighed me down,
And I couldn’t breathe…..

And so I made a decision,
A random one, not thought out deeply,
Just random, a situational one,
To drop that heaviness
And throw it far away from my heart.

And when I did that,
A breath of fresh air hit me,
It was such a wonderful whiff of freshness……
The world smiled at me,
With the smile of a toothless child,
In beautiful innocence……
And I smiled at myself….
And everyone else………

And from that day onwards,
I do not carry around hatred in my heart.
I realized how easy it was to forgive……..
