Declutter the mind,

let go of baggage,

restrict the emotions,

rid self of subjectivity.


I ask this of myself

and of you,

knowing fully well

it might not come through.


For these are too much to ask

for you, me or anyone around.

For objectivity is tough to come by.

Old habits fight hard.


Opinions overcome all.

Yet, I ask of you and me,

declutter this mind,

lighten this heart.


Let go of despair, regret, pain,

all the other baggage,

we carry forward,

time and again.
