>Holding On To The Past

>

We hold on to the past when we are unsure of our future
Fastening together past life experiences like stitches from a suture
Jagged seams along past unhealed wounds randomly shows
Old cloth and new cloth sewn together disrupts the pattern’s flow
Material symbolically woven together that expresses chaos
Moth consumed garments produces the effects of an Albatross
We wear the garb of the past so long that it comes back to the present
Even with all of the knowledge we have we still end up looking like a peasant
Laboring to piece together fibers that are decorative but do not fit
We allow the past to bind us to where we now sit
What will we perceive when the eye of the needle finally passes through
Will that be a pivotal point saying “it’s time to renew”
It’s time to shed the oppressive covering from the past
It’s time to discard the apparel and remove the cast
Will we finally let go of the past to secure our future
Will we allow the wounds repaired so we can remove the sutures
Announce it’s time to wear new garments symbolic of recovery
Time to wear the attire of wisdom and discovery
Will you remove the garments of the past
Or will you hold on to see how long it will last
