The Past Has Passed

We hold tightly to the past.
Memories are dear, yes, but
mistakes and misfortunes
tend to sneak through the
cracks.
Unclench your first. Let go
of that which holds you back;
it has yet to serve you well.
Why would it now?
Open your palm to discard
moments that cause discomfort
or pain. Open your palm to
receive the gifts that lay ahead.
Remember: the past has passed.
