Spring Cleaning

Open up the blinds,
pull out those old, dusty hangers
no one uses anymore,
and begin to piece together
the broken life you took for granted.
Realize there is something better:
hardwood floors beneath the clutter,
happiness beyond the hurt,
love in a broken family.
Dig old secrets out of the corners
and out from underneath the bed;
throw away the ones that don’t matter.
Find the little treasures you had loved and forgotten
then place them on your highest shelf,
bright and sunny and safe from harm.
Wipe off those old, dusty hangers
hang your best memories on them
and smile.
Today is another day.
