From basement to ceiling

"But in my head
    there's some shelves that need cleaning
          from basement to ceiling -
                                                       Control."


I believe in fresh starts. Clean slates. Clear consciences. Of course these are not limited to any calendar day or to specific moments in time. But today, I choose again to leave the filth behind.


In 2013, I'm going to find that girl I left back in 2010. But the pieces of myself that I left in your arms, the ones in your hands, and especially the ones at your feet... keep them. I have not yet forgiven you, but on most days I can forgive myself. And for that, I am grateful.

To take each day as it comes.
To continue healing.
To live in grace.
To breathe.
To love.

Happy new year.

  11. I like the message in your short poem. It is important to walk on and to heal, and not to get paralyzed in the painful past, though sometimes it's just difficult to forget and move on.

    I wish you a (belated) happy New Year, may the year brings you happiness and good health. Take care!

  14. Everyday, I think, today is the day to clean the shit up and get on with it. And the next morning, it repeats.
