Pick me up like a backpack onto your back
Fill me up with enough supplies
Then let us go, into the journey of our lives.
Unzip me up, take whatever you may need.
That’s okay, that’s the reason why I am here.
You’ll be the guide, to take me to new worlds.
I’ll be the bag, that’ll hold your worries and your joys.
Pick me up, remember that’s your choice.
Fill me up, with whatever you may need.
Then let us go, but before, you have to know
You too will be
the carrier of my burdens and my joys.
