On A Trip

What To Take, What To Leave Behind

Take clothes, camera, a book, toiletries
leave behind expectations, good or bad
leave behind wishes, wants, needs
take goodwill, concern, consideration
take a light heart, take compassion
take your genuine self, if you have one, which
you do, so dig it up, frost off your mirror, look
into your eyes and see, you are real, you are
genuine, leave your other self behind
