past

don’t allow your past to have power over you,

haunt your future,

or silence your voice,

instead,

extricate past abusers by throwing their negative words and actions into a heap

sending it out with the rubbish

and allowing the vultures to determine their fate

 

with the rubbish gone

plant some flowers in its place

  1. This poem is powerful. I love the vivid imagery. I especially liked:

    by throwing their negative words and actions into a heap
    sending it out with the rubbish
    and allowing the vultures to determine their fate

    I can almost see the vultures destroying the negative words and actions.

  3. This post is amazing. Thanks for sharing it. Sometimes it is very difficult to let go of the past. It is easier said than done for a lot of people including me. A lot of us as humans tend to live in the past and never move on. But I see where you’re coming from. Very nice words.
