I Release My Past

I RELEASE MY PAST

I release my past
the guilt and shame
and pain of it
the broken lives
and lost friends
the heavy days that
blurred and passed
before I knew
what they taught

I release my past
the dreams and hopes
and joy of it
the chance meetings
and shy smiles
the new love and
adventures that
blurred and passed
before I knew
what they promised

I release my past
the warp and weft
and weight of it
the bonds and binds
and tethered nows
the smallness
and the sadness
that blur and pass
before I know
what they conceal
