A Letter To Moch
Dear younger self,
If I could turn the tides
And go back.
Begin to work on the
Emotional wall that
Stops you from living,
The things we have witnessed
Gracefully made us who we are.
Becoming the man, you want to be
Is like walking the narrow slippery
top of the wall that, I had
made in defense of suffering.
I would tell you that the stone wall that has built up moss from the absent of emotional work, and that missing stones is who
You are, but that isn’t the end.
While traveling the top of this wall
You should walk, hopefully downward.
Travel with heavy heart felt steps until
You no longer travel on our wall.
If its pain, take each step slow like
A baby learning to walk. How you
Chose to step is up to you.
Continue to shape and transform,
But do not become the mason that
Builds the wall. With each fallen stone
The opportunity to love blossoms like flowers in the spring. Depict each stone
as a feeling. Forgive, love, and accept the wall. And continue to move forward.
