Cutting the Cords

Cutting the Cords

awareness of our old ways
how we automatically spend our days
gives merit to knowing
what the new is bestowing

what no longer makes sense
what has been acting as a fence
blocking our flow
time to let it go

metaphorically use
a blade of flint or obsidian
cut away the old cords
that held us in oblivion

that unconscious state
is now out of date
bring the gems from the past
into the new they’ll be cast

foundational for the future
built on with love
according to the new ways
that we’re a part of
