What to pack when you are leaving with no hope of return?

What to leave behind for others to pick?

How much can I carry?

How much do I need?

Do I say good bye?

To whom?

A list flutters in a corner of the mind?

“My suitcase holds:

love

compassion & empathy

tolerance

my father’s love on a gold chain

my mother’s love in every cell of my body

hope

space for the unknown

freedom.”

Where do I deposit it?

How long till the whistle blows?

I wait.
