Mending the Pattern by Philip C. Robinson


Give me the chance
to show You
who I
am

Without pretense
Without prejudice

Regardless of
Your own
Past

My Past
is not Yours

Why let it
define ME
before You’ve
given me
the opportunity
to show You

My character
My thoughts
My actions
My beliefs

Why choose
to stubbornly
believe
Your past
will always
and accurately
predict
My Future?

Let it go.

Each new experience
deserves
to be regarded
uniquely
on its own.

Without such baggage

perhaps kindness
can again be seen as
kindness
and not as something
sinister

perhaps Love
can be without
the conditions
that only existed
in some other time
at some other place
with some other person

perhaps actions
can flow without
constant wariness-
instead of
protecting
the past
by denying
the future.

Dare We
cut the cords
to the past

and weave
a wonderful
new
Now?
