VESSELS OF LIFEYou and I, my friend are vesselsSailing from one port to the otherAnd …in the process we upload and unload bundles onto our vesselsBundles of joyBundles of sorrowBundles of regretBundles of loveBundles of disappointmentBundles of achievementBundles of failureBundles of pleasureSometimes when we move on, leaving some of these bundleswe feel lighter and sometimes heavierAnd then damn … we sail back and go and fetch the bundles that should actually have been left behindSometimes we have bundles that stay on our boats of life, foreverToo hard to unload and too distressing to leaveThen these bundles of life become part of our boatYou become used to your bundles, content, and you and the bundles become like fossils, part of your vessel.You have peace with each other. ‘My fossils and I.’Then over time, we try to undo these ‘fossils,’And oh dear … what a mistake. There is a hole … the water is gushing in.Quickly, plug that fossil back, or …… sinkThanks you made the right decision, my dear. Embrace the fossils and move on.A new adventure might wait in the next harbour of life.
