I have an image to back.


In the dark of night I

peek into my pack.

 

I have stuffed my emotions safely

into my pack.

 

Among the emotions

I carry anger and hatred in my pack.

 

They cover my heart and arteries like plaque.

 

You may be surprised at the contents of my pack.

 

I look calm, smiling, put together and on track.

 

I cannot show you what is in my pack.

 

I have an image to back.

 

I have an urge to share my pack

without owning what is in my pack.

 

I share my pack

for causes that give me no flak.

 

My pack and I traveled a lonely path.

 

I realize now that lashing out at others

is not in my highest good.

 

I am now aware of the contents of my pack.

 

Learning to feel and express my emotions cleanly

without stuffing them in the pack.

 

Such a burden I used to carry in my pack.

 

I no longer travel a lonely path.

 

I now travel with a much lighter pack.

Yes sir, emotions packed away merely grow into something unpleasant, not to mention heavy. Lighter packs are best. Patrick

I travel with a monkey, but there is no difference. A wise little ditty that I have had the pleasure to read.

Empty out your pack, Shervin Hojat, and allow Jesus to help you! Remember, His yoke is easy and His burdens light. Hopefully, this poem may inspire others to empty their pack too. Blessings!

Great poem. We all carry burdens at one time or another and it is so important to share and be honest, but oh so hard.
