You? - Poem by Carl Roussell

Freeing history.
Events of the past
Have become today's
Memories; a life
That feeds the future.

I burn bridges,
Untie the ties
That kept me there,
That had me bound.

Stepping out,
Walking to
The future.

Will it

    A powerful and thought provoking poem.
    Poignant yet beautiful.
    Sometimes we have to come out of our shell to
    wrap the future.
    Liked the form of this fascinating write.

    Thanks for the reading and comment. The diminished Hexaverse is a really cool form and one of my favourites, though it can be a challenging endeavour.
