Poem: No Thing Behind

No Thing Behind

By: Joi Maree Brown

There's nothing behind me to leave my name on
No one's hand to keep ahold of
No thing left undone to complete
Not even the old I will be taken with me

I am changed
But not of the same I

Changed in betterment
Changed in wisdom
Made anew in God

There's nothing behind me for me to worry about
No wrongs to right
No thing or person to hold on to me in strife
Not even a defeated battle to re-fight

I am moving forward
Each step to proceed the next
With no intention of ever turning around

My purpose, ready to fulfill
My choice in direction, God's Will

Forgiven of my past
Moving pass my past

As there's no thing behind me
Needing to go with me
