Carrying that Heavy Luggage Called Responsibility

Responsibility, to some might be easy

As counting one to three, or climbing a short tree.

But for me, it is like carrying the whole world

Upon my back like the Indian legend of old.

I took each of them to heart, very seriously

For I believe in my heart, that it’s my duty

To fulfill them, for the sake of my family

As well as my contribution to my country.

These responsibilities, in whatever form,

Should be faced with a committed heart, that’s the norm

But sad to say, not everyone is that stalwart

Who can keep up with it with a strong and brave heart.

To those who have the tendency to fall, waver,

I deeply pray your faith remains strong whenever

Self-doubts and weariness suddenly take over

For God is our Refuge, so please do remember.
