Our Story

The weight of the world
Across weary shoulders.
When did this load
Get so heavy?
How did all this brokenness 
Come to be?
When will it ease?
This burden carried 
Since that day?
How will this story end?
For it will.
That’s how stories are.
Just, please tell me, 
That we’re strong enough 
to write a happy ending?
