The burden

Burden of shame 
I do because they say
I say I don't want to disappoint 
Them
But I try 
I try to hide my feelings of inadequacy 
Resentful of those who don't bear this cross 
Constantly creeping on hot coals
Tip toeing around my inability to speak up and out 
Out 
Wondering when I will burn and break 
Carrying this burden of shame
