Bearing My Burdens

How my soul drags
And drags me along with it.
I’m trying to fight
The urge to quit.
Ghosts of the past.
Worries of the future.
For all that I know,
I am more unsure.
Troubles arise.
Answers appear.
Why is it such a battle
To face doubt and fear?
Weakened by life,
I lay in despair.
Strengthened by Christ,
My burdens I bear.
