keep life light


we pack experiences and impressions
overload on bags of memories
we try to drag them along in moments
overload on bags of miseries
we forget to unpack when new times come
we try to bring up old news that is buried
digging sometimes for hours just to find
the feeling of the now that aligns
to make a case or make a plea or make a repeat of past
because we keep carrying old luggage hoping to make it last
however, wheels are falling off and the straps are breaking
perhaps now is the time to start thinking
drop the bags and leave them where they are
and walk easier throughout our journey near and far
step with a brand new stride
creating new rules to pack light
when things get too heavy,
begin to clean out all the stuff
that does not fit in our space now
so we can keep life light
one moment at a time
