Too Much to Care For

Why do I bother to care?
Why do I take on weight
that is not mine to bear?
Why am I impacted by pain
not inflected on myself?
Why do I bother to care?
Why do I regret
what I haven't lost?
Why do I suffer tortures 
meant for someone else?
Why do I bother to care?
Why do I bother to care about
when I have too much to care for?
