The devil's wings pushed me down ~
They were terribly heavy and bore upon me like a barbell to my shoulders.
I begged for release;
Prayed to the Heavens for refuge
But I knew, I too, had a cross to bear ~
And one I had to bear alone.
And the more I fought ~
The heavier it got;
The rougher the road;
The longer the journey:
The darker the night. ~dpb~
