Weight of the World

 

The weight of the world is heavy, not meant for a single frame.

            Do not harm and disable yourself with pain that hath not your name.

 

It only makes things worse as we travel life’s bumpy road.

            No good can come to the universe when individuals double their load.

 

Sympathy needs to be balanced, or else it can take its toll.

            We’re not meant to “suffer for it.”  That’s not compassion’s roll.

  

It’s best to travel light, the farther we’re able to go.

            Light steps, light souls, light hearts, the more we’ll evolve and grow.

  

Do what you can from the grandstands, a place with a better view

            Where equal amounts of joy can be seen - love and happiness too.

 

 The weight of the world is heavy, not meant for a single frame.

            Do not harm and disable yourself with pain that hath not your name.

 

It only makes things worse as we travel life’s bumpy road.

            No good can come to the universe when individuals double their load.
