The Cross


“If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.”
Matthew 16:24
My cross
Is heavy
I stagger
And fall
Beneath
The weight
Of this life
Trying
To rise
Disillusioned,  hurt,  cynical,  angry,  revengeful,  troubled
I am apt to blame others for my shortcomings and failures
I aim to
Stand
Upright
Shoulder
My burden
Move ever
Higher to
Carry my
Cross
