The Things

The Things
Wes Provine
Nov 26, 2016


The things inside
The things that we hide
The things that make us cry
The things about which we lie.

The things that we carry
The things that make us weary
The things that we bury
The things that are scary.

The things we do not share
The things that seem unfair
The things that load us with care
The things we can hardly bear.

The things only God knows
The things that bring us low
The things that steal our hope
The things at the end of our rope.

But is this list complete?
The things people perceive
The things people see
What things are these?

These are the things that we wear
These are the things of which we don’t care
These are the things that we dare
These are the things others help us bear.

These are the things outside
These are the things of our pride
These are the things in sight
These are the things in the light.

All these things are yours and mine
All these things are part of life.
Some of these things we divide
But the heaviest things are the ones we hide.
