The Cleaning

The Purification
Washing ones heart of their crimes
Stripping the shame of ones soul
Clearing the mind of it's evil thoughts
Starting over in the hopes of becoming whole once more
Shedding toxins that plague their morality
Leaving behind all that once was to wade in the emptiness of now

Stepping into the shallows shyly
Fearful and unsure yet so ready for the new.
Stepping further into the deep
Waiting wading waiting and wading
Give in ...sink... slipping down under
Release all that they held onto so tightly
Watching it all drift away just like the hours of yesterday

Their are renewed cleaned for another day.
