The Burden of Life

The Burden of Life

Life is difficult

It’s truer day-by-day

It’s not your fault

Sometimes people pay and lose their way

Loneliness, sickness, death, and decay

It’s a lie to say ‘Everything will be OK’

But

If life is to be a burden

To bear on our shoulders

Then oughtn’t we try to make it lighter?

That is all we can hope to do

For ourselves and for each other.
