Travel Light

Travel Light

Travel Light in this journey of Life,

Take only what you need,

Hatred: Leave behind,

For it’s an evil seed;

The roots run deep and spring up like a weed.

Tainting the beauty of everything you’ll see,

Impeding your journey, entangling your feet,

Travel Light in this Journey of Life,

Take only what you need,

Seeds of anger cause you to say things you don’t mean,

It’s unnecessary;

On this road, it will cause you to pay many a toll,

When you’ve bought into anger

Exchange it for self-control;

Travel Light in this passage of life,

Take only what you need,

Never fill your bag

Remember that you need.

Room to grow,

And people who know,

How to make you laugh

Unpack the suitcase of burdensome grudge

and replace it with, unconditional Love

Yet most importantly

Watch your company

Perhaps more essential than what we take

Is who we leave,

Sojourner travel Light!

Take only what you need,

Righteousness, joy,

peace, goodness, mercy, self-control, wisdom, and charity
