Forgetting

Forgetting what lay behind I press on ….

on towards a hope and a future.

As I step into my future,

I  step away from the past.

Out from under its hold …. out of the cold…. and into the light.

I am holding onto his love, ever so tight.

Turning my head from the old ways …. I face a new day!

Forgetting the past – Embracing the present

Letting go of old encumbrances

the chains that bind

and the shadows from my mind.

I am forgetting

in exchange for embracing…

embracing my future.

    Beautiful words. What a lovely poem, what a hopeful way of looking forward…. Bless you.

  2. Beautiful post! You must be a poet. I am a prose writer, myself. I don’t see how that can come out of your mind in five minutes. I loved it!
