*New Game Start*

Put it on,

take it off,

throw that identity over your shoulder.

Put it as a passed destination on your path,

like an old slough.

.

Did it get too clammy?

Did the identity begin to drip-drip

between your eyes?

Whatever the reason,

just throw it away,

you can always grow another.

.

But like a cloak with special pins

or a school ID,

the loss of that identity

will lock you out of some things.

As they say;

“It’s gonna cost ya.”

.

You can’t say you already

met so-and-so,

that was the old you.

You can’t say you are a member

of this society,

that was the old you.

You can’t say you come from that home-stead,

you have no home.

You’re starting from scratch,

remember.

.

As a new unformed personality,

free from the old restraints,

everything is back to the basics.

There is no “return to an old save”,

you’ve erased all those.

.

Freedom there is,

but nothing is truly free.

To have freedom from the past

means you can no longer rely on the past,

so enjoy your “new game”!
