Lighten Your Burden

Lighten Your Burden

Lighten Your Burden
Lighten Your Burden


Living a life under barter,

What would I first offer?

Long list of services to charter,

The first would be an author.


Needing a gorgeous portrait?

Painted with absolute care?

Perhaps a photo? Simply gorgeous!

My skills do not end there.


Require writings in verse?

We can strike a deal.

While I labor your words,

Won’t you prepare a meal?


If you don’t know how to cook,

Don’t waste a moment on worry.

I have many recipes in my book –

My comfort food will leave you merry!


Do you have need of advice?

Answers that you desire to know?

I listen well – no need to ask twice.

Give me a moment to lay out my tarot.


In a world structured on trade,

I don’t believe I would perish.

The goal for me would be the same.

Serving others, a quality I cherish.

  2. Cheap Paragis Tea is making in the province of Yunnan, which is also known as the “God’s Own Country” because of its high quality and wide
    variety of tea leaves. Its production and processing are not regulated by any government agency and are thus
    considered a hobby of the people, who are called gong
    fu or tung fu masters. Because of this, they have decided to produce
    their own version of Paragis Tea which can be enjoyed to its fullest by those who love it.
