Not My Load To Carry (a poem)

“[Ye] cannot bear all things now…”
-Doctrine & Covenants 50:40

Not my load to carry (it’s not)
My burden to bear
Sorry if it’s heartless, (don’t have)
Energy to care

My heart soaks up emotions
I get myself involved
Need better boundary maint’nance (there are)
Problems I can’t solve

Mourn with those who mourn
But not if it’s just me
Help me to be wise and to
Discern my energies

Sometimes we’re the answer
To someone else’s pleading (some)
Times we simply can’t provide
What someone else is needing

Can actually do more good
Can be a better steward (when I)
Realize limitations
And leave them to the Lord
😀
