Writing about life


I am a bag lady
 

I have collected bags

all my life

as long as I can remember

some big

some small

some stylish

some plain

these bags –

I collect

even

hoard...some might say

these bags

hold everything
everything in my life
emotions
stories
hurts
loves

lately though –
I have realized
these bags
all weigh different

 ~love is light and airy

I can sling it over my shoulder and take it with me wherever I go –
no matter how long the journey
Joy is the same
I can stuff my bag full of joy

and never feel
its weight
on my shoulder

but on the side
anger
shame
hate

can weigh me down
even if I am only carrying
a single
lonely
pebble in my bag

this tiny pebble
weighs a ton
like carrying bricks
bending me
side to side
hurts my body

little
by
little
tweaking my back
here and there

I have decided though
I surely don’t need
all these bags
weighing me down.

 I am getting rid of the bags
especially the tiny bags

the tiny bags
that carry

only the pebbles
the pebbles

that weigh me down

 I have decided
I only need One bag

One bag
and One bag only
to carry God

with me

all day

everyday

in that bag

I will find

all the

Love

Joy

Grace

Laughter

Hope

I can imagine

and

that

will be my only bag

I carry

from now on

My Name is Bar Leo from usa, I wish to share my testimonies with the general public about what this same man i once saw on this forum called Dr.Agbazara of AGBAZARA TEMPLE has just done for me , this man has just brought back my lost Ex husband to me with his great spell within 72 hours. I was married to my husband Alana Evans, we were together for a long time and we loved our self's but when I was unable to give him a child for 4 years he left me and told me he can't continue anymore then I was now looking for ways to get him back until i saw Dr.Agbazara contact on this site about his powers. Please do also contact him in any problem you are passing and see for your self on:

Dr. Ekpen Temple Your spell worked and brought my husband back to me. You gave me support when I was feeling hopeless. I feel truly blessed to have found your email address. I sincerely hope others will take that leap of faith and let you help them as you have helped me, for those of you who want to contact him reach him on his email address: ( ekpentemple@gmail.com ) you will never regret contacting him… He is capable of restoring your relationship and marriage problems like he did for me.

A GREAT SPELL CASTER (DR. EMU) THAT HELP ME BRING BACK MY EX GIRLFRIEND.
Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.
Email him at: Emutemple@gmail.com

When my lover left me she sworn never to come back to me again but thank God that through the help of Dr.Agbazara i have my lover back to me within 48 hours and i will also want other people that are heart broken to contact Dr.Agbazara through these details below which are via email: ( agbazara@gmail.com ) or via Whatsapp on +2348104102662 then you can see the wonders of Dr.Agbazara*
