The pain and weight that burdens bear
come haunting us from everywhere.
They pull us down and steal our minds -
emotions felt of every kind.
Hate and anger, guilt we know -
they own our travels as we go.
We can't go back. The time has run
as every circumstance is done.
Both good and bad, forever past
as if in concrete each is cast.
But God has spoken loud and clear
that love was given, grace is here.
Accepting is our only task.
It's simple if we only ask.
