Carry It

293282_4304334685350_2122636110_n

Carry it through the long dark night

-don’t let it fall

-or you will have failed

-don’t stop to rest

-or it grows heavier

Carry it over rocky uneven ground

-don’t miss a step

-or the pain will grow

-don’t catch an edge

-or you may break

Carry it across raging wide river

-don’t get it wet

-or it is hard to hold

-don’t slide below

-or you will be lost

Carry it within you too deeply

-don’t set it aside

-or you may forget

-don’t move beyond

-or you might be healed
