The Work

antBy Veronica Haunani Fitzhugh

A lone ant patiently carries an impossible load.
The weight’s so heavy, she loses her balance in every small step.
Instead of asking for help or splitting the bundle–
she stops to rest, dances, and eats what she carries.
Her burden nourishes, energizes as well as challenges her.

How do I eat my challenges, so I may also carry them home?
