Our Things

It feels strange sitting among all these boxes
Items we marked with an ‘x’
To indicate they were necessary,
Things we couldn’t live without.
Most these things seem trivial.
We don’t even need to unpack.
We’ve lived 3 months without them.
Do we really need them back?
Now all the possessions feel heavy
With responsibility, space and clutter.
Staring at all these ‘things’
What really comes to mind
Is that when we left for those months
We took what mattered most.
