Don't Be Too Burdened


Don't be too burdened by the little quest
Set down for you in life, a test and tourney,
Although already tired and reft of rest,
'Tis preparation for a greater journey.

Don't be too burdened by the little load
Upon your back, the world so hard to bear,
Although it weighs you down along the road,
'Tis preparation for a greater care.

Don't be too burdened by the little year,
Topping the ladder of your mortal time,
Although it seems so altitud'nous here,
'Tis preparation for a greater climb.

Don't be too burdened by what goes away,
'Tis preparation for the things that stay.

Not allowing our burdens to overwhelm us is difficult, but necessary in order to think straight.
