Traveling Light


As I continue on my journey
I'm beginning to travel light
Preparing myself for tomorrow
the distance is out of sight

my suitcase is old and tattered
backpack is old and shattered
shoulder bag is not leather
imitation, I do think

waters of clear crystal
how I long to drink
threads breaking loose, unravel
many steps left to travel

so many things are idols
I don't need anymore
I'll understand it better
when I reach the other shore

learning to clear my pathway
for tomorrow is a better day
burden of this life
will suddenly wash away

in the stillness of the night
I'm beginning to travel light.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
