Baggage

Twould it be so easy to not look back
Fly forward stretching for the finish line
Leaving behind the baggage of the past
Could I just let go if I were inclined

Embracing one another holding close
Soon warmth turns to fire spreading throughout limbs
Flame covering burning to nothingness
All is silent as the bright light goes dim

Door knob in one hand baggage in other
I know I would be nothing without you
Hugging close as if we are but the one
If I go then you must come with me to

Baggage that I carry has carried me
In essence it is the person you see.

Do you really see your baggage as the essence of you?
if it is, what happens when you start to let go of the pieces one at a time?

Nice poem Bell4truth

Nice poem Bell4truth


Yes I do believe my baggage is very much a part of who I am today. From everything I have been through in life it has molded and shaped me into the person I am.Because I choose to celebrate good times in life and learn from times that have been not good some would call it baggage. I believe when you let go of pieces you start to heal. You let go of it all and you will repeat somethings in life you might not want to. It is not so much that one has baggage it is how one chooses to live with it that defines if it is destructive to the person or not. The whole poem is actually a love poem to my baggage. Thank you for reading and commenting.wave
