Take it back

Take it back
I don’t want it anymore

In fact, the day it was given to me,
I wasn’t even sure that I wanted
Nor needed what you had to offer.

So, take it away
Put it in a locker,
Put it out of sight.
Throw away the key.

Do anything you can to get it away from me.

I feel sick when
I think about
The baggage that you handed to me,
So loaded and heavy.

Take it away,
Out of my sight
As soon as you can.
And listen to me right now
When I tell you it’s true,
Whatever burden you gave me -

I’m giving it back to you.
