Unbearable Weight

From time to time,

There are things

That weigh me down.

But one of the most

Difficult to lay aside

Is sorrow.

Sadness is a liquid emotion.

It permeates

My entire being.

It’s an anchor

That keeps me from flying.

A ten ton anvil

Sitting on my chest.

I can’t simply

Shake it off.

I commend all

Who have learned

To surrender

Their heaviest burdens

And keep flying.

In order to reach out

And help others,

I must look up.

I must relinquish

The unbearable weight.

I must keep flying

No matter what.

Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you (1 Peter 5:6-7, ESV).
