Old Clothes

the clothes you think you need

to cover yourself from old shame and pain

are no longer needed

put them into the basket of your mind

and burn them with the sun of your compassion

see the smoke rising into the air

with rings of peace and signs of hope

nothing can hurt you in any way

that has to do with the old

everything is new and always will be

even the future is a shadow of one's past

in Gods presence
