Loud THUD!
Numerous thick books on the
Top curvy plywood drops onto
Numerous books on the
Lower curvy plywood breaks onto
Numerous books on the
Third curvy plywood
Except books on the
Bottom straight wood are intact

Large
Thick
Heavy
Piling stones of burdens
On our shoulders
Eventually
Wear us down

Large
Thick
Heavy
Pressure of life
On our shoulders
Eventually
Wear us down

Eventually
Cause mental breakdown
Losing hope to live
Death seems feasible solution

Stop!
Stop thinking of
Swift solution
Saviour is nigh to the
Broken hearted

Suddenly, a loud thud caught my parents’ and my attention. The uppermost bookshelf fell hard onto the second level. Second level affects the third, but leaves the lowest unscathed. Oh! This stressed me out. I just applied for another job because my current job isn’t enough for my food expenses. Somehow, this incident speaks to me about the heavy burdens mankind carry on their shoulders.

Dam

Dam

~ Hikari Yori

Prophet Jeremiah cried to the Lord
Seeking His help and deliverance
Pronounce curse towards those who tried to destroy him
When our dam is full of the weight of the world
Overflowing of pain and anxiety will occur
Cry to the Saviour who will lighten our burden
When we lean upon Him and His guidance
Learn to bless knowing His peace
