LIFE IS A BURDEN MADE LIGHT

Life is a burden made light
By the weight of sacrifice
Your life is useless unless used to the full
For something meaningful and useful.

Self is heavy, selflessness is light
The battle is painless for them that fight
The volunteer’s prize is dignity
Freedom is not for free.

    1. Hi Helen,
      thanks a lot for purchasing it! I really appreciate that.
      Actually I’ve published quite a number already – this is just the most recent one, published in April. It’s not ‘general’ literature, though. It’s African, to stimulate the development of 3rd word countries. But I hope you enjoy it all the same.
      Once again… thank you!
