DROPPING THE NEED FOR EXCUSES

Once you
drop the need
to make excuse
for everything
you are
and every thing
you ever did
or were,

and then
you cut you loose
from all
of your life’s
chains and pains
so slow assumed
or suddenly
bequeathed to you
like age-old heirlooms,

then you can plant
your unique seed,

to make
of higher use–
to all the world
and you–
every fiber of your being,

so you become
the star
you’ve always been,

and then,
unveil your life’s
true work and dreams
long hid
deep down
with your bright vision,

once, from your
rote-learned role of victim,
you are,
+++++through your calm surrender
+++++and your firm decision,
wholly freed.
