Carry The Weight

By SC   

he flexed his muscles
gearing up to carry the weight that lay ahead.
in his hand
he held the world.
so light yet so heavy
depending on the choice he decided to make.
saved or suffering.
he decided for a victim
that didn’t know their life was on the brink
of being taken away.
he had the chance to
put the weight down
but he was so far gone.
the weight was stuck to his hand welded there
unable to be moved.
his arms quivered with fatigue
his finger primed and ready.
he dropped the weight.
far into the depths
of nothingness.
his face showed no regret. he stood upright
with a pride he did not deserve to possess and walked away.
Never looking back and
Never saying sorry.
