A Choice

The hamster slumbering peacefully
in a quiet corner of your soul,
is jolted awake by the piercing insistency
of your mind.
He trudges begrudgingly
toward the well-worn wheel and climbs on,
blinks twice in exhaustion,
and begins the endless trek of
worry, distress, fear, and uncertainty.
Don’t you think it’s time you allowed him some rest?
The sparrow in the cage of your heart
is more than willing to carry his burden
far from here.
All you have to do is open the cage door
and set her free.

Bird free of cage


  1. And God always helps us with our choices if we but ask Him! Thank you for the meaningful comparison.
