Packed Away

Thanks to Blogger’s auto-post function, even though I’m busy at New Student Orientation, this post is popping up here. Isn’t technology crazy?!

Imagine that your life is made
Of do-dads and thingies and baubles
That tells a story of you
You cannot add any footnotes
Nor insert extra meaning
Only objects that stand alone
Now take those things, pack them up
The big things on the bottom
Heavy, weighed down by memories,
They create a foundation
Tuck the small things where they fit
Close the boxes up, stack them by the door
A lifetime packed away in cardboard
