Burdens

Away from the din, I run
Far beyond the souls that plead
From broken hearts that bleed
What to do, how to help...how to mend
The devastation I see?
Searching and clamoring for meaning
These tortured ones will grasp
For what they are without
They run and chase about
But no answers have I, today
I suppose that I could say, 
"God will save you from your plight"
Then, cling to Him, they might
But still it seems cliche'...
And so easy for me to say
When I, too, oft lose my way

    I like this. I'm an expert at losing my way but I keep praying. Sometimes wonder why He just doesn't give up on me. God Bless. Vince

    It is not always easy to say the right thing when someone is suffering. Sometimes it is enough for someone to know you are there. A great write we can all identify with. Thanks for sharing. Caroline.

    Nice write Donna. In your last line, you need "lose" instead of "loose" What you have there is the word for either free and roaming or not tightened.

    When we see no other solutions, we always suggest people pray. Yes, sometimes it does seem like a cliche', Donna, but it often works. Welcome back, Golden girl, I haven't seen your work for a while and this gripping piece is an example of what we Soupers miss when you are away. Love, Carolyn
