G- Gritty Moments of Truth

well, here I am traveling life’s path
among the foothills of Mt Ziibi
carrying way too many belongings
teetering with upward steps

around midday, it's time to break
near a pool of a mountain stream
splashing my flushed cheeks, I sit
contemplating all I am carrying.

It’s hard not to laugh at myself
clinging to material as if its flesh
so many memories intertwined
with the weights that hold me back.
