Am I bearing this burden for you?
Or a fictitious version of myself
It pains me that I must deny this pleasure
In favor of catalyzing growth
The apple of my eye
Has become the crucible in my cup
This very covetable prize
Has been taken from me
Is this struggle real?
Or have I yet to wake from this dream
