WORN OUT BELIEFS

By Charles Robert Lindholm  

worn out beliefs
from long, long ago
linger inside me
why, I don’t know

 outgrown and old fashioned
like little boy toys
dictated thinking of
sins and of joys 

worn out beliefs
on this and on that
no longer reality
like the world must be flat 

worn out beliefs
I need to discard
remnants of fantasy
but changing is hard

        1. I read your post and am very honored to have inspired even as much as a title. I did love your line – “The regrets of a life that I dared to waste.” So, much. I think the comment that was made on your post about living in the now, was good, however we are made up of past experiences and beliefs that we have held that some times need to be “Culled from time to time”. Thanks again for this honor, My Friend!

          1. “culled from time to time”- beautifully said, Chuck. That’s what many people tend to forget, let their expired beliefs dictate their actions and it becomes dangerous.

    1. Hey Friend! So glad You loved this! This was something that I really wanted to say and enjoyed writing too. Kind of a rejection of the “We’ve always done it this way” attitude.

  1. ‘worn out beliefs’ – indeed a prompting sentence. Let me see what I can come up with, if you are looking for excitement, you can Maybe host it as a writing prompt. Just a thought! Good to read your poems again, Chuck!
