Shake off the dust

woman blowing white powder

Sometimes I have to remember

To shake off the dust

Of indifference

Of rejection

Of disrespect

Of unkindness

Of memories

Of the past

Not out of bitterness

Or anger

Or hate

Or vengeance

But because the weight

Of the dust

Can slow

My forward motion

Besides,

It’s hard to shine

When you’re dusty
