Catharsis

It’s time again to reinvent
To shed the skin of old,
Shake off any lingering fears
Start visualizing bold

Who’ll emerge when all is done
Is simply hard to tell,
Regardless, I shall not resist
For stagnant equals hell

I trust my soul when call it does
For me to do its bidding,
Cast off external nonsense played
By gratefully forgiving

For each time that the whispers build
Into a cry to alter,
I’ve found the wisdom of the change
A gift that never falters

So come again, this time and next,
And challenge all I am,
To shift perceptions of the whole
And find the grace to bend
