Cast Off

I cast off the small slights,
the regrets,
the longings,
and wantings

I cast off the past
and the future
and give myself a present,
the present,
which is why it's called a gift.
A present of the present.

So I move 
move with about as much grace 
as I can muster  

The unexpectedness
the spontaneous beauty,
that's a new way of thinking

I cast off,
secure in my knowledge
and hope for the future.
