Release the Past

Friend, it is time to stop playing out
The patterns of the past
You are not that past
And you have probably healed it
As much as you can

So now it is time to meet the day with fresh eyes
With clear awareness, no residue, nothing sticky
Just holding everything in the depth of you
As a wise elder, who has been through the wars,
Now meets drama and trouble as the open sky meets the clouds

The truth is the past can never be fully resolved
All we can really do is let it be as it is and release it
It defines us only as long as we choose

There is such a freedom to be found
When we meet the day
The way the day meets us
Fresh and new and open.
