Throw it with all the others and be done (freeverse)

Have been in this stone too long
unable to breath and move
Set in this place
heart muffled, trembling, 
My fears covered like moss
but i've broken it in two
Revealing the core

Nothing but more stone,
here lies the wreckage of my home
Hard and Heavy
my enemy, my burden
throw it in the lake with all the others,
now i've escaped

It's worth shedding this cold weight
