Beneath The Grey (10)

(the burden to show)


Slip from your shoulders

The burden they hold,

It’s time for the truth

And for you to be bold.


Reveal to yourself

What already you know,

The burden so great

No longer to grow.


One tiny movement

Is all it will take,

The burden to share

The ice to break.


So slip from your shoulders

Now that you may,

The burden to show

From beneath the grey,
