Baggage...

by Gwydion Ap Alder

Age Group: Adult



Baggage, It comes in all sizes and weights, styles and shapes
This negative energy baggage from others we so often assume
But since this ill-energy baggage is not really ours to handle
We tire quickly trying to bear what was never ours to carry
Becoming heavy and slow from the drag of their negative energies
Their dark, sad, draining energy which we try to take on and banish
Sadly their source of negativity is not diminished by our sacrifice
As the well spring of its flow has not been addressed or corrected
So we go along carrying it, fighting, taking on more and more until WE
The healers, heart-led, the lovers, are brought low with illness and fatigue.
We, those that were born of magicks and touched by our Loving Gods
Often feel responsible for the lives around us wrestling with pain
Sensitive we are, giving as well, but over-burdened we can so easily become

The heart of one such may give understanding and love, but should never take on the burdens, lessons, or life journeys of others. Because, by so doing, the energies are never released or healed and they simply spread and can infect others with their poison.

Breathe in life and love …exhale your blessings …release the burdens that are not yours to bear… and be free to LIVE as you were meant to LIVE.

Blessed Be!

Gwydion ) O (




Author's Notes: Note to myself on how not to take others burdens or outsource power trying to "fix" others pains or sorrows.
