I carry

Burdens? Loves? Desires? Troubles? Memories? Actual things? Responsibilities at home, in school, for your friends?

What do you "carry"? Whether it is the smallest detail or a heavy load weighing you down, please share a poem or two. You may find the experience rather cathartic.  Not only that, after you read others' writing, you will probably see how we all often  share the same responsibilities-- no matter where we live.  This prompt was inspired by Tim O'Brien's The Things They Carried.
