Last week, through Charisma Productions and SiS Films, I premiered my first SL short, Burdens. I’m ecstatic that through my blog, the SiS blog, and YouTube, the movie has gotten a lot of views and so many positive thoughts from viewers! Makes the heart swell with warmth. This week at the SiS site, in honor of Burdens and of laying one’s burdens down, we showcase the poem “The Things You Carried.”
Here’s a snippet:
You carried many things – some good and some bad; however, what hunched your shoulders, what sprouted sweat upon your brow, what grew a heart heavy, what made a spirit falter, what made faith dissipate, what made believing unimaginable were your burdens.
Lack of Money
Body Image Issues
Fear of Any and Everything
Worry about the
As the first burden takes shape, falls upon your back, and becomes a part of you; the tiniest of cracks forms. Invisible to the naked eye, invisible to all but two: God and the Devil.
