Renew



~~~

I must purge

Throw off the negative

In a shuffling of the mind

Exhaling the unwanted

The unneeded

The misled

~~~

Exhausting the world

And its darkish stains

Sullied upon the good

Pushing out the ugly

The uncaring

The bled

~~~

Cast off the shadows

Black corners deep

The scent of decay

Parsed from the soul

The unholy

The bred

~~~

I must scrape

Old layers to the new

Free what lingers

The rot of old thoughts

The ancient

The dead

~~~

    It is a constant push and pull of adding and subtracting what is positive and what is negative in our lives.

  5. I must purge as well. I would have done it much earlier if I had understood the urgency as conveyed by your compelling words.

    We all need to cleanse our heart and souls indeed. What a gorgeous way to describe the purging of the ugly, cruel or simply hurtful acts that linger. Lovely piece Brad. ❤️🤗🦋
