All You Got

How many times can a box be packed
and repacked before the memories held inside
give up
give out
wave a little white flag
as if to say, “you tried your best but your best wasn’t good enough”

How many times have I seen this same scene
whole lives
crammed in basements
in water damaged boxes
in plastic bags
all to be tossed
because it’s too painful to look inside
and see those demons
or at least peer inside and see if they’re still there
I guess after awhile it’s no longer worth it

Just keep moving on with your mistakes
keep breathing
in with the denial
out with the guilt
in with the denial
out with the regret

Just keep moving on with your mistakes
I guess after awhile it’s all you got.
