by Dr. Rick McGrath, Ph.D.
(Modesto, CA)

Like Atlas I feel the heavy weight
I try to carry it all to heaven’s gate
As if it was some kind of punishment
Perhaps the need for atonement.

The foolishness to try and carry it all
Not born for this, not my real call
Yet I do what I do to take it all on
This weight each day I don.

When will I learn to let it go
This weight is all for show
I am but only one man you see
From this weight make me free.
