Holding old visions and lives
Careers homes not the prize
Fresh starts without old weight
Going forward new template

Unforgiving scenarios old
Wrapped in shackles binding hold
Blinders surround the possible now
Cloud new vistas constraining how

What’s seen shaped by who’s looking
What’s served reflects who’s cooking
Reinvention what you need
Old ego ties will impede

Something good in continuity
Folks around provide congruity
Need not be blood profession race
Spiritual family takes their place

Mental walls are only clay
No need to hold yourself at bay
Careful ghosts clouding precision
What’s your message what’s your vision

What barriers do you construct for yourself and how do they constrain?

How can you stop?
