Burden

I know I am a
Burden, burden, burden.
Please don't tell me I'm not.
I can see it in your eyes.

~

I know I am a 
Burden, burden, burden.
Your smile says it all.
Your endeavors to engage me in a meaningless conversation.

~

I know I am a
Burden, burden, burden.
As I sit silent in your presence.
Trying my best to help.

~

I know I am a
Burden, burden, burden.
I shall not open my mouth to speak of the pain inside.
I would only be an obligation.

~

I know I am a
Burden, burden, burden.
Resolutely I have decided not to speak my mind.
I refuse to open my mouth when in pain.

~

I know I am a
Burden, burden, burden.
Don't try to tell me otherwise.
I can feel the weight of sadness descend.

~

I know I am a
Burden, burden, burden.
But there is one that takes burdens.
Will He take me?

~

I am no longer a
Burden, burden, burden.
He has taken me.
He carries me willingly.

I am no longer a
Burden, burden, burden. 

The End
