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. Sounds like a good idea to leave it all behind. That’s what I need to do as well!


  2. Amen, sounds like a good idea to leave it all behind, something I too have a hard time in doing

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