To Leave the War House Locked

To Leave the War House Locked ~ L'assemblage by Michael Douglas Jones  ©2020



In my past, there was a warehouse where I stored my weapons of war.  My anger and hurt were in there, with my drawn out plans of vengeance against those that had wronged me.  I locked it deep inside me as I went about my days, and now the lock has rusted shut; I cannot get back in, and I've forgotten what I was fighting about.

Perhaps it is time to forgive those that have wronged me and to leave the war house locked.

Patient,
stands the empty vase in winter,
waiting for the summer blossom.
