Cut the ties and make a run for it.
Delve head-first into a new job,
be there for your new friends.
Write a letter to the past, seal it,
as it drifts into the fireplace.
Watch it burn.
Too many post-it notes on too
many places reminding you of
things to do, places to go, people to see.
Running the rat race full throttle
into the future with both hands
making a grab for success.
It is time to face the people
you left at the threshold of the door.
Mount your horse and ride
back the way you came.
Feel the tears rise as you approach
your failures, with determination.
It is here you will learn to make
peace with yourself;
to forgive, to let resistance go
to align with grace.
Everything familiar and same old
same old, begins to recalibrate -
when you embrace what you left
in order to find everything new.
