For once

“For once, let the hidden qualms be voiced, those biggest fears be revealed and the worries be unburdened. The weight is heavy and so cruel that it won’t settle for anything less than fulfilling its harsh desire to make you crumble underneath.
For once, let your words flow, if not from your lips then from this ink. This fragile paper can take those words, those qualms, fears and worries. This fragile paper won’t let that cruel weight have its way.
Don’t hold back, don’t let yourself get buried. Every day is a fight to save yourself from crumbling. So for once, let the hidden qualms be voiced.”
