Retract your claws.
Release your grasp
On old hurts and regrets of the past.
Wounds left open
And afflicted in you by others.
Wrongs done by you yourself as well.
Misunderstandings and assumptions
Creating resentment in your belly.
Release them into the stillness.
This is not a practice round but you already know that.
And you wonder why,
Sweet misery still beds you.
Untie the binds that restrain you from
From holding love to your heart.
Do not wait.
