Habits

Too immense to carry,
heavy to drag behind –
I seek step after step
forward and upward
away from ruts
habitually lived.

Too weighty on the heart,
taxing on the mind –
I seek change after change
forward and upward
away from patterns
habitually repeated.

Too emotionally draining,
drawing from the soul –
I seek thought after thought
forward and upward
away from processes
habitually processing.

Until I release
from my patterns
and breathe relief….
