Molding Expectation Into Life

Molding Expectation Into Life
Molding Expectation Into Life

Clean, this acceptance,
no longer the burden of irresolution,
and the soul sighs with relief,
the grief too much to bear,
when we carry burdens like baggage,
appendages of weight and limit,
their existence always in mind,
their dark shadow always one step ahead.

Why do I tether myself to past,
moments long gone, yet lingering
as guilt and regret of mistakes,
when life is now, before me,
transformed long ago,
yet I still cling to my imperfections,
let them seed doubt in the present,
and placate my potential.

How unkind I am to myself,
echoes just reflections of memory,
when catharsis awaits me,
to bury all those past regrets
and let this moment live fresh in time,
free from my muddy considerations
of who I was, and am no more,
here in my clean soul being.

I let go all that burdened this mind,
for what good is a buried corpse,
but to feed the worms,
and in letting go I see eternal possibility,
freedoms unlimited breadth,
and each breath is no longer laden,
but rather a reminder of what gift I hold,
what expectation I can mold into life.

    A great affirmation, Tony. Every moment lived in the past darkens a day that could be spent in joyous freedom, hope and love. Great work, dear poet.
