Once at a

Train station I

Saw this man

Struggling with baggage

So many bags

Heavy bags burdensome

Bags bags that

Obviously had seen

Wars and triumphs

I helped him

Load them into

The train and

Once seated he

Asked me sir

You only have

One bag are

You traveling near

No I said

I’m going to

The other side

Of the world

With just one

Bag he said

One bag is

All I need

I plan on

Meeting people and

People don’t fit

Into bags things

Do and things

Are not people

No matter how

Much that you

Wish they were
