The easing of burdens

Updated: Dec 27, 2020

"Many hands make light work"



We struck forth in a huff, with our wagons

Loaded with all our worldly goods.

You stayed behind, to rest from toiling

With your heavy carts of materials.

We aimed to search for sweeter ground,

And you sought a smoother road.

All of us met again on that refugee trail.

We were re-tracing our path to find

Our point of departure.

You were tracking our trail to find

Your lost fellows.

We all enjoyed a tearful hearty laugh,

As we realized it was our friendship

Which had lightened our loads.
