How Many Boxes?

It is astoundingly queer as my Nan would say

for us today that would be strange,

regardless of the life one has lived

affluent or pauper

that in the end,

after the good byes

the mourning and the funeral song

what is physically left of one’s life when all is said and done

is a few boxes and bags of papers and personals

the number of such changes depending on one’s station in life

truly reveals

that what matters most

is NOT the number of boxes one leaves behind to fill,

BUT the life one has left

that fills the hearts and souls of those who live on

reflecting that life in their day to day actions.
