~::~ Emotional Baggage ~::~

One Saturday evening I was just lazing around on my bed, going through some old files on my External Hard Disk Drive. I casually came across some old poems, articles and stuff that I had written over the past couple of years. As I was perusing through them I realized how many twists and turns life throws upon us and we always have something new to learn. Some new experiences ~ irrespective whether they are positive or negative, we fall down and yet we always get up and go again! There is pain, there is hurt, there is happiness and a million other feelings washing over you. At times, leaving you with too much to deal with.

On the tenterhooks of an emotional overhaul, I wrote a poem on emotional baggage that we often carry around. Baggage that is on our back with every experience, every incident, every person in our life. This baggage at times brings fond memories and at times gives pain. This emotional baggage needs to be shed, only than shall we emerge stronger and have peace of mind.


~::~ Emotional Baggage ~::~

Once in while

There comes a time

When baggage in pile

Should be left behind


Those are the things

That trouble our mind

Those are bad feelings

To be left behind


Gone is another year

Which came with such zest

Some for some good, for some meager

Yet for others it was the best



I am not sure how well I have provided an insight on the emotional baggage and how to rectify them. But I hope you do like the poem.

Do let me know your thoughts through your comments. Honest feedback appreciated.

  1. yeah right. everyone has one of these usb stick or old hard drives full of emotional baggage from previous experiences
    Honestly, it is sometimes nice to just sink in the past …it also revives some good feelings ..along with the bad ones so I don’t really agree with you idea of shedding it

    nice poem btw
