BAGGAGE

You are too darn heavy to carry around…….

Excuse me let me unload my baggage.

This load have been weighing me down

For far too long.

Gaining this weigh is so unfair

Especially when you are so unaware.

Baggage weighing you down lack

So much fun.

Where are the carousels spinning,

So I can choose the less burdensome?

Baggage you flew everywhere,

Sailing you were there

On train you stayed on track.

Nowhere to unpack.

Baggage wishing you will fall out

Of clear blue sky.

Baggage wishing you’ll leave my mind

At first sight with every command.

Baggage wishing you had respect on

My mental prospect.

Baggage left unclaimed will be mentally

Destroyed and brain drained.

Baggage emotionally attached will

Set up trap for future pain.

Baggage if not dealt with on the clock

Will cause overload.

Baggage will you allow me to find a rock in a partner

To lean on and unload.

Baggage I found a scale and you are much lighter,

Your appearance is calmer.

Baggage nowhere in sight. I gave up my rights to

Finally unload you with strong might.
