Clearing Out the Cobwebs


Give your head a shake.

Try to break away

from the web of yesterday.

This little game we play,

ends in a grim charade.

Mourning every dead and gone



we all go to the same places.

Cobwebs in dusty corners

of our minds.

Dark shadows

where regretful times reside.


you must open your eyes

and let the light inside,

banish the unkind lives

you never lived.

There is so much more than this

way in which the world persists

to remind us of things

that don’t exist.

Hit the throttle

on a high-speed ride.

Let the wind in your face

set you right.

The only way is forward.

Leave the past where it lies.
