‘Wires and weights’ – Promote Yourself

I thought this was a great poem:



Each weight is a worry

Each wire is its bind

Unable to detach themselves

They pull and they grind

Add another and another

Never allowed to leave

Carried forever forward

The mind is deceived

Push on and keep going

Ignore all the signs

Dragging close behind

Are memories of past crimes

Each one has its tale

And won’t be released

There are two options

Feel pain or face the beast

The first seems less frightening

But of course cannot last

The weights keep on building

The weights of the past

Next comes a wall

The future is blocked

It’s time to turn around

So the weights can be dropped

What must be done

To sever wires bound

Is scary and uncertain

But answers can be found

Denial of those weights

Pushing on through that pain

Inevitably shows itself

Unsustainable and to no gain

Spin and focus

See what’s really there
