blue traveler

This bundle of life we carry can be a very heavy load

With the good the bad and the ugly things we carry down the road

 

Everything we ever hoped for with all our hearts and minds

We struggle with the burden and it gets heavier all the time

 

The road is long and winding the pace is both fast and slow

It seems all too much to carry but too much to let go

 

We all make the journey onward and on our dying day

We all will get to find out just what our bundle’s weigh

        I found this poem to be fantastic! Sometimes we feel that our bundles are too much to bear but as the wise saying goes, cuz it's actually not in the bible but "God never gives you more than you can handle". At least I've never come across it. Wonderful message!
