Bag : Carry Not

Lugging around a heavy laptop bag,
it struck me…
that I can carry it long
because I set it down regularly…
on the train, on the bus,
while standing, while sitting.

I can carry it well
because I can put it down well too.
Contrary to usual reasoning,
the best ‘carrier’ is not one who always carries,
but who knows when to let it go,
who knows when to pick it up too.
