Everyone has a set stashed away in a dusty closet:
a lightweight overnighter,
fitted with doubts, unanswered questions,
cryptic comments —
perfect for ruining a peaceful day.
packed with unresolved anger, jealousy,
ideal for fouling a friendship.
a steamer trunk
stuffed with lies, secrets, and rumors
souvenirs from scenic tours through Hell,
guaranteed to destroy a marriage begun in Heaven.
But when the luggage
on our hearts
and in our souls
becomes too heavy to carry,
we can bow our heads
and bend our knees
and You lighten our load.
