Heavy luggage

How heavy is the luggage
Of an entire life
Travels and places, people and feelings
You saw it all, you felt it all
Even the ones
You may not have known
But, all the same, they came along
*
How heavy is the luggage
That you must carry yourself
No porter will offer to get it for you
Although you’re willing to pay
It’s you who chose to come with so much weight
*
But, oh, if only you could
Leave the suitcases
Go back for different choices
More practical, lighter ones
More useful, better ones
*
But, oh, if only you could
Throw a little ballast off your life’s balloon
Make it rise
So you can see the world
From above, from afar
