|Great work, George. I missed you.

|It is just a wonderful path you leave here. I think the pockets should be turned out now and again - a cleaning up if possible.
|Reviewed by Lois Christensen
|I was always told by my Mother in Law to look to the future and forget the past. It is good advice as well as this poem gives us advice to not carry anything, but carry smiles. It is so great a write that I am glad I found it today. Added baggage to our body brings us down and causes ill health too. So we must let go of our sorrows and worries and go on with life and put bad tings behind us. **********|

Seriously I Loved This From Both Aspects of The Pockets We Carry.

|...thank you for the space to breathe in. ..and out again.. ..speaking openly, it was the man in the poem holding everyone else's hurts for them. ...but yes, i can be guilty as charged; holding onto things [both sorrows and joys] until they meld into my skin.. .. . and yes too, i tend to use writing as a catharsis....to get some 'things' as far away from me as possible....or at least just out.
but thank you for this little smile, which i can actually wear [and NOT put into a pocket.....catch a falling star and put it in your pocket, save it for a rainy day]. ...

|Focus on the smiles not the past sorrows as many of us do. Excellent write.|

|Wise advice, my friend...
Hopefully pockets will also not be big enough to carry all the smiles...and we can wear them on our faces too, right?
|Reviewed by Felix Perry
|Sage advice indeed and it is sad that we do tend to carry too much of sorrows baggage and not enough of the joy of life.
|Reviewed by Karen Palumbo
|Well said and very powerful. Much better to carry around pockets of happiness and shed the sorrows that one is powerless to ever change.....
Be always safe,

|Very wise, A bag full of smiles to give to others,, Sweet Poem!
|Reviewed by E T Waldron
|Uplifting poem with a wisdom message...I agree with George!
Also,some people can write better of sorrow than of happiness,because they have more experience with it,
and get relief by writing of it.
|Reviewed by Lois Christensen
|Good advice and makes you think as to why sadness comes to us. I fight it and liked your poem. Happy Easter to you.|

|Georg, I love this one to pieces! The bag I carry (we all carry one) is chock full of giggles and fun and happy memories. I have a back pocket for the few dark-side sorrow things, and I sit on them while I smoke my pipe (and slurp one of your Coors) and think about pleasing things. Life is good. Celebrating bad news cannot be a good thing. Write on, Georg!

|Unfortunately some people hold onto sorrows much too long and are never able to enjoy life to its fullest.A smile is contagious so spread it around.|

Now you're talkin, Brother. And those smiles are really light, too.

|Well penned Georg
I leave my sorrows on the wings of a sparrow
so she may fly them away from me
To my never arrival of tomorrow.
Peace be with you Brother
