This bag of Rocks



I seem to be in the poetry writing mood lately.
****************

This Bag of Rocks

Damn this bag of rocks, holding all my fears
Damn this bag of rocks, responsible for all my tears
Damn this bag of rocks, been here for all these years
Bruised, blistered, battered and scarred
Can't let go of this bag of rocks no matter how hard
I tried last year, and many before
All I got was a few rocks more
The rocks are all memories of the mistakes I have made
Things I regret, decisions, I've laid
These rock that cannot be given to anyone else
Now they rest upon my back as their shelf
I carry them along, I carry them hard
My knees sometimes they buckle, help me, dear Lord
I say that time and again, but always, I carry my load
Not knowing if anyone might walk this same road
Damn this bag of rocks, beating against my back
Damn this bag of rocks, holding me back
Damn this bag of rocks

I've got a big hammer that you can use to beat those rocks into itty bitty bits of sand. Then you'll have a beach.

how about letting me carry them for awhile - give your back a rest

You cannot conceive the many without the one.
