Carry That Load
He was dragging a heavy burden exposed for all to see. Its jagged edges had left scars across his body. Mike struggled to shine dull surfaces until they gleamed. Friends, even strangers offered desperately needed parts. Just when he felt like he was speeding down the road, life threw a monkey wrench leaving him stranded, broken. His foster parents never tired and never let him give up.
In cap and gown, he waited for his name to be called, Dr. Michael Harris. He was proud to show off the polished result of his efforts, the past no longer a burden.
Thanks for taking the time to read.
