Burdens

Am I a burden to You? I know this isn't true. But I wonder with all that I do - The turning away, my fragile fidelity, This paralyzing inability to do anything right, This feeling that perhaps Your love, in all it's might, has excluded me - If I am a burden to You. You... Continue Reading →
