       If anyone feels like their talents are both a gift and a curse due to the expectations that come with them, then this is the poem for you.

    Make the font bigger!! Double Spacing Back to recent posts.


    The bag that I carry is the only bag that I need
    But if bag becomes burden, then dilemma indeed
    Let me explain what I mean
    It would seem I have been given everything I need to succeed

    But its to bad that things are not that simple
    The world keeps moving while I stand in limbo

    Talking about potential!

    Its holding me back, holding me down, Iím just trying to hold it intact

    So these questions I ask

    Should I cut ties-close eyes never look back?
    Can I afford to cut chords with this bag that I tote?
    Can I enter the winter missing my coat?
    Better yet can I forfeit the ultimate blessing?
    Can I go far in a war without any weapons?

    You see why I am stressing?
    I cant carry this load and I cant let it go.
    So I pray oh LORD would you please let me know
    What should I do?
    Thatís when You sang these words that rang so true.

    You said my son- youíre so dumb and so confused
    Let Me explain- real plain why you have these tools

    If the gifts Iíve given you are becoming a burden
    Than use them to help someone who is hurting
    Your talents were never meant to carry around,
    Just come to My alter and lay them down.
    These words resound
    So I am emptying my bag even now.
