Our Baggage


What do you carry

In the baggage you hold?

How tight do your keep

Your grip?


Do you shuffle and fold

And occasionally toss

The items you carry

Each day?


Are they heavy and cold

Or cheerful and light?

Do you keep

Under lock and key?


Do you share what you have

With those you hold dear?

Or hide them away



Perhaps it is time

To reveal what you have

To lighten the burden

You hold.


Each of us owns

Some baggage we hide

So don’t be afraid

To unpack.

    I went on a holiday…from my baggage 😀
    Which is so easy, you just do what is normal at an airport. Get on the plane with it and assuredly it will not arrive where you do 😂
    Great verse dear lady, and wisdom forever in hearing it 😀

    Wonderful Pam. Something we all can relate to….certainly me. I found myself in every stanza. At my age it’s time, past time, that I start unpacking my baggage. Not sure where I’m going from here, but I want to travel light!

    It was just the other day we talked about “clutter” and I said I didn’t like to live in clutter. Then I read today’s post and thought, ” Baggage – clutter, same thing!”
