Chain of Burden



Open my heart, Lord and look inside
Fill it with humility and not with pride.

Show me a door Lord ,that I can explore
Set me among those who are humble and poor.

Riches and spoil are portions of disaster.
I long for the bread that is served by my Master.

Pride is an arrogant hanging chain
around a neck that causes much pain.

Lift me up Father, and bring me to a place
where I am surrounded by your love & grace.

Set me upon land where I can be good
Obeying your laws as I know I should.

Guard my lips every moment of each day
Rid me of pride in all I do and say .



Psalm 37:6 Therefore pride is a chain
about their neck; Violence covereth them
as a garment.




Inspired by Him.
Julie Pisacane 2004

The analogy you make is well done...I enjoyed your poem very much...I do so love the truth and beauty of artful poetry such as you have shared...I do believe poetry is the language of Heavenly space and the cathartic tool of a world which at times wreaks of sadness...

Your poem flowed so nicely. It's something i can see in a frame on a table for everyone to read each day.
