Hello Ommies,

The April Newsletter reminded me that I'm a member of this community. I thought I'd start contributing to it by posting lyrics and a link to a song I've written. The song is called The Bag is Just So Heavy. It was written during a more trying time of my life and expresses my frustration that I have this vision of being a messenger of New Thought, but I couldn't seem to garner any traction. A recording can be found on the Spotify page for my album, Songs of Illumination. This is the fourth song on the album, but feel free to listen to the whole thing. If you'd like to know more about me and my music please let me know or go to my web page stevechandler-music.com and sign up for my email list. Thank you and please enjoy.

This Bag is Just So Heavy


Verse 1

It's all in there, it's all in there,

all my hopes and fears

Every challenge, every dare,

all my laughter and my tears

My bag contains regrets,

some real and some imagined

It's the mission I accept,

though some days leave me saddened.



This bag is just so heavy,

it's really a challenge to lift

Don't know if I'll ever be ready,

to let go of this wonderful gift


Verse 2

Sometimes you know, sometimes you know

I don't feel strong,

and I don't know, no I don't know

what I might do wrong

Sometimes it's all I can do

to put one foot in front of the other

Yet that gradually changes the view,

as the miles add to one a other.





I know who I am and what I want to say

I've no choice but to keep trying

I know that I can and I'll work every day

Even if I'm the only one buying


This Bag is just so heavy


Verse 3

My direction is a dream,

I don't know will ever come true

I just point into the stream,

of life flowing through

We can only do our best

and keep the dream a goal

With luck we'll achieve success,

but the years still take their toll
