Carrier

It’s what carries us; that’s all 
Starting the day with a mirror assisted carving knife
Each part of me subject to an imaginary slice
My landscape surveyed by a perfectionist eye
And I behold my un-photoshopped body with a sigh
Pleading for a transformation before sleep each night
It’s what carries us; that’s all

It’s what carries us; that’s all
A part of me is missing by a surgeons hand
I cannot write or run and I can barely stand
I need help with daily tasks no matter how bland
And a simple outing has to be completely planned
Leaving my dignity in someone’s else’s hands
It’s what carries us; that’s all

It’s what carries us; that’s all
Each day is darkness and each moment silent
But my brain reaches to create beyond it
Longing for sensation anyway it can find it
Re-wiring itself to behold what is vibrant
With trepidation I create despite it
It’s what carries us; that’s all

It’s what carries us; that’s all
My mind cannot trust itself at all
It leads to addiction or imaginary calls
And I am easily lost in its halls
Medicine the only thing preventing it’s stalls
Tormenting voices in the background call
It’s what carries us; that’s all

It’s what’s carries us; that’s all
The vessel that contains our expansive soul
The world is cruel and chastises our bodies whole
Incomplete, broken, ugly; words take their toll
This vessel in truth beyond our total control
But loving it anyway is a noble goal
It’s what carries us; that’s all

It’s what’s carries us; that’s all
You are valuable beyond body shape
Beyond missing sensations, mental health, or weight
Your soul is the blueprint for your escape
The belief you matter beyond societies landscape
Peace comes through self-love not self-hate
It’s what carries us after all
