Go on, pull the thread.
Unravel that old worn out sweater of a life
that no longer keeps you warm
and protected against the winds of change.

You've long outgrown it anyway.

Just tug at one of the yarns that keep you
wrapped up inside your grand mothers needlework,
handed down from generation to generation.
Heir-looming over you with stitches of
tradition and family ties....that bind.

Knit your life together
in colors of your own choosing.
After all,
no one learns all the stitches
in order to wear someone else's creation.
