Prompt 154: Humility

Thanks to Robert of Daily Athens for this week's prompt, humility. Here are his poem and image:

hold on, hold on tight
life does not move back, ever
become load, lift up

Robert says: "This 'picture' was inspired by looking at a mother carrying her child upon her shoulders. Being a young father myself, the responsibility and work surely provided a heavy load, yet I have to admit, have lifted me up like nothing else.

And yes, Matth. 11:28-30 was in my mind as well.
