My Sack by Zeke Greenwald

Annie told me just one thing,
When I bought a knapsack:
Not to fill it over-full
‘fore I put it on my back

It seemed like advice I’d keep
When she said it, in that moment.
Since then life’s made demands from me;
Since then I’ve over filled it

I’d like to say I’ve helped my
Bag with its longevity.
But what choice had I, when I’ve
Had burdens, but make it heavy.
