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’
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.
