Shed a burden

I wonder about a word that means “having shed an unwanted burden” or the loss of a heavy weight you’ve been carrying around.  I’ve been trying to title a poem that expresses that feeling and don’t have any good words or short phrases.

I’ve been checking out your archive - this is fantastic!

I did a quick look out on the blogosphere and the only thing I found is “Xernia” from Greek meaning to not be a burden to one’s host.  I will certainly keep an eye out for something to that effect! I feel like it would definitely have one out there.

Glad you’re enjoying the blog!
