Poem for New beginnings prompt
Throw it far away

don't keep it close
it only kills
all that it comes near to,

it cannot give it only takes
all you ever were and all you ever will be.

Know it had its place, its purpose served
now its time to sacrifice any comforts it may bring
and though that truth might sting
its bitter pill brought healing as its gift

so throw it far now
throw it long
and forget all that it stands for
and the price you paid
for owning it
will not be paid in vain.

Letting go of what we know
the price we pay for shame
