Questions 3:22 pm

Close my eyes
and focus on the shallow breathing
another deeper breath
and I begin to feel my anchor
it’s changed over the past
few weeks
and I’ve been wondering if that’s okay
that it is now my belly
although it was once my chest
would it matter if I laid
to rest all the qualms
and suffering of lives past?
Or is it my job to remember
to honor the dead
in my own waking life?
By clinging to the ancestors
do I leave room for my own children’s growth–
Does that mean that I want to forget?
Does that make me a bad person?
And in whose eyes
who exactly does the judging…
for then aren’t I
Aren’t you
just as bad
as the person
who threw the
very
first
stone?
