Unpack my heavy baggage relieve me

Of my pain, I am screaming inside

My brain, packed with thoughts, slain, set me free

Running in circles nowhere to hide.

Arrrrrrrrrgh! Pain

Unpack me set me free again.

    I feel the pain in your words. I wish I could pack the pain in a backpack for a while.

    Interesting use of the word pack! Indeed we all need to unpack painful things from our minds.
