The world’s weighing heavy on shoulders too narrow

Her hopes they are low now, her dreams they are shallow

With words left unspoken she says as she sees

And tells herself lies that she thinks she believes


Too anxious to ask for the help that she needs

She follows the path where her hopelessness leads

Desperate to stray from her way that’s she’s making

Still she continues the steps she’s mistaking


And so all alone through the darkness of night

She sits on her own, out of mind, out of sight

The world still keeps turning, life’s passing her by

Leaving her nothing but tears in her eye


And yet there is someone who beckons her still

One who’s not left her, one who never will

His yoke it is easy, His burden is light

And He promises rest, and to make it all right.

Nothing particularly interesting to say other than I'm a GP with an interest in emotional well-being, an avid Somerset County Cricket Club supporter and a poor example of a Christian who likes to put finger to keyboard from time to time and who is foolish enough to think that someone out there may be interested enough to read what I've written. Some of these blogs have grown over time and some portions of earlier blogs reappear in slightly different forms in later blogs. Apologies for the repetition. What I have posted today (6th August 2018) consists of what I have written over the last few years - whether I write anything ever again, only time will tell.
