Burden

i’ve been carrying around a kit of tools
the weight of which encumbered me
kept me from being able to
make anything

i put them down
in aimless weightlessness i rise
but like a boat with no tiller
i would have neither direction nor purpose

now i see what this really is
i take them up, deliberately this time
now i learn how to use them
thus their weight will set me free
