His Burden Read Count : 30

Arise from my slumber I did, the early hours had awoken me.

For I felt like I had been robbed of what I desired most.

The attire I donned gave little comfort nor did it feel natural on my skin.

I began walking through the forest.

Trees danced in the wind, I watched their poetic movements.

Abruptly, some of the trees began to fall to the ground. There was nothing I could do.

I continued walking, the trees lied on the ground, the sun shined brightly into the area.

Cautiously, I walked onwards.

More trees had grown, it had become too thick for me, hard to see what was in front.

The 1st tree had begun spreading it's leaves amongst others, the months went by and he was crowded in by the rest.

I could barely see him, yet he seemed to enjoy himself.

The rest of the trees did the same, and soon, they too were crowded. I could barely see them either.

I continued onwards, silence filled the air, I could barely make out a glimpse of them.

Heavy rain and thunder followed, there I walked amongst my self.

The rain and thunder persisted onto me.

And it dawned to me, for I could never be like the rest of them.
