1. VI


I don't want to task you with,
Keeping me afloat.
Much as I am still that boy,
Pulling at your coat.

I won't lay my worry down,
Save a thought to spare.
Though I'm laden up with mine,
You've your own to bear.

I won't let my troubles weigh,
Heavy on your mind.
Anchored down but trying to take,
One day at a time.
