Backsack



I carry the sack

on my bent and aching back

it is a long time since I have opened it

examined it

cleaned it up

old thoughts

dusty memories

outdated plans

most of them now irrelevant

and I dread the chore


who can keep track of it all

my tired body asks

let alone carry out

those youthful bold intentions

and there is no answer except

not I


perhaps it is time

to say

another goodbye


so many
