POEMS: “Whatever doesn’t serve”

Whatever Doesn’t Serve

What weight can you
put down right now,
willingly relinquishing
the pointed quills of
guilt or judgment?
What burden of the heart
can lift, what dark corner
can be lit, the candle
flickering at first, then
burning bright?
With the next breath,
let it go, that old story
you’ve told yourself
a million times.
Whatever doesn’t serve
you on this path of truth,
leave it behind. Offer
this one gift: the simple
sacrifice that in the giving
sets you free to fully live.

    1. So true! And most of those things are in the past, and cannot be changed, and to worry about the future is the same thing. We have to learn to become like children, o be spontaneous and enjoy this present moment to the fullest 🙂 ❤
