Travelling Light. - Poem by Fay Slimm

Bags filled with the past.
Hanging, heavy as lead,
At times lasting well
Into future years,
Which much lighter would be,
It has to be said,
If bagless we faced life
Without memory's tears.

    I love the association of 'heavy as lead' with 'into future years.' The last thing our futures need is lead poisoning. (Report)Reply

    It may appear hard
    but look,
    leaves fall from a tree,
    the effort is holding on
    effortless,
    they've gone!

    It's hard letting go of all that Baggage, it's just part of who you are... Andrew 10 (Report)Reply
