As time makes the ageing process a bit easier,
I discover more and more
that I don’t have to work very hard
at maintaining certain relationships.
Years of deception, discretionary reflection
and epiphanies come to light the way.
The jigsaw puzzle and hidden agendas
begin to come together.
Lying phases and eluding stages
give rise to reasons from way-back-when.
But there is also a freedom
that becomes quite pleasing,
after the whirlwind of feeling betrayed.
The power of letting bad history go
allows me to know,
the strength of my essence within.
And I recognize my true “self” once again.
