I am broken.

I am broken beyond being fixed.

I carry burdens too heavy to bear.

I hide secrets too painful to keep.

I’m paying for debts I do not owe.

I’m being punished for crimes I didn’t commit.

I’m doing my suffering here on Earth.

I’m like Humpty Dumpty; I can’t be put back together again.

I’m like shattered glass, all in a million little pieces.

I’m like a cracked egg that’s fallen on the floor.

I feel like I carry the weight of the world.

My life has destroyed me and my dreams have turned to nightmares.

I have no fight left.

I have no strength to endure.

My life falls apart in pieces all around me.

The pain never ends.

Everything is broken now.

Cracks first appear until I break,

but no one’s there to pick up the shattered pieces.

Have you ever seen a hippo cry?
