I think I’ll have a brain garage sale.
I’ll declutter the thoughts
that roll around my mind
and stick to the corners of my heart.
I dust them off,
look at them,
really look at them,
and determine what’s no longer needed.
Act like a lady. (whatever that means)
Do it right the first time.
Idle hands are the work of the devil.
Girls can’t do that.
Don’t be so bossy.
Oh, so many old childhood messages,
hidden deep in my psyche.
They serve no purpose
but to create doubt and
Strengthening my old companion
Time to move them out,
let them go.
I may not be able to sell them,
yet the task of dusting them off
creates space for new stories.
What would you put in your Brain Garage Sale?
