Burdened

by Sanjida Shaheed

I cannot carry
This load
In my heart
Anymore.

It is invisible
Yet it is
Tearing me apart.

Mercy!
Have mercy!
I am lost,
Burned,
Broken
And devastated
Without your mercy.

How can I cross
This road
That seems to lead
Nowhere?

Give me signs
And signposts.

All that I have left
Is a prayer
And a broken heart.

I bury my face
Behind my hands.
Yet I long to see
Your light.

Please come
And lift me up.

I have fallen
And cannot stand up
On my own.
