Leave it Behind

On a journey, tedious,

I bear a heavy load.

Was hoping the trip would be easier;

but I walk a wearisome road.

*****~~~~~

Is there no one to help me

carry all this weight?

I’m feeling suffocated.

My heaviness is my fate.

*****~~~~~

What’s that I’m dragging behind me?

Why, that’s my lifelong luggage.

I keep a record of EVERY THING,

then I store it up as baggage.

*****~~~~~

Inside you’ll find my memories.

Go ahead, pop the lid.

Everything ever done to me;

and everything I ever did.

*****~~~~~

All my hurts, all my woes;

all my wayward ways.

All my questions, all my doubts;

all my nights and days.

*****~~~~~

But, recently someone mentioned freedom;

the kind that’s genuine, and lasts.

Oh, boy, what I wouldn’t give

for freedom from my past!

*****~~~~~

So lately, I’ve been struggling,

and thinking in my mind.

Maybe, just maybe, NOW is the time

to simply leave it behind.

*****~~~~~

“… Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead,” Philippians 3:13

    1. It can be challenging. We downsized a few years ago and moved into a smaller house. Difficult, very difficult!
