Move on like you don’t have a past –
as if every decision made
in the grand scheme of things,
no longer matters.
Treat yesterday as a memory
from a book read beneath a tree
in the height of a lazy summer.
Move on like you don’t have a future –
as if every plan you ever made
has been sent back to the drawing board
of your dreams.
Lift your pen and write the words
waiting to be said and lived.
This is moving on.
~ Nikki Anne Schmutz
The past month has brought irrevocable change to my life. I don’t see any other way to move forward except to reconfigure everything I thought I knew. So here I go… pen of my soul back to the drawing board.
