Share the Load

Speak words of
gentle faith and hope,
to those whose
burdens lay
heavy upon their shoulders,
weary with defeat.

Share with them
the love of Jesus,
offer them
helping hands.
Give them respite from the weight
of their heavy loads.

Be a friend
to those without friends,
be a light
in the dark.
Share your strength with the helpless,
just like Jesus did.

    What a noble poem! I will have to do these things more often. Perfect ending there!

    This is a very uplifting poem, and encouraging as well. People need words of encouragement from time to time or they will feel like there's no point in continuing on in what they're doing. You seem to express this kind of light in your writing that radiates through your words. Wonderful write! Love Holly :)

    This is such a lovely thought, Kim, now I am searching for your example of the new form you introduced for your contest. Guess I will go back to the contest page to find its title.
