Uncertain Journey

I heave my life onto my shoulders
as an anvil that bears down on my soul,

Each step along the cobbled path of my existence
seems to sink deeper into the stones on which I walk.

I look around me and see others who are on my road
and struggling under stones and boulders of their own
and force my heart to open to their plight
knowing that my burden may be lighter;

I step forward, inch by inch, and without a rest
as I see those I love who depend on me
walk beside me, offering to take my weight from me
but I walk on and carry it for them…they are not meant to carry it

The journey has been long
and will never find an end
because knowing my strength
must continue….for them.
