Take off the heaviness of living for others,
And your whole being becomes lighter.
Do those activities that tickle your fancy.
Fulfilling your passions makes life brighter.
A lighter spirit keeps the darkness away,
Opening doors to be who you really are.
Let go of the mantle of pleasing others,
And let healing come to your soul’s scars.
No one knows your dreams better than you.
To some folks your ambitions seem unreal.
But, hold on to the visions in your hearts,
Going to God for help in sincere appeal.
