Ash Wednesday—I—by TS Eliot

This poem across about one year has really helped me accept myself and the fact that I’ve lost just about everyone that ever knew me. I am starting over at the age of 56 and if there is one thing I know I must set myself to do for the rest of my life it is to not put any expectation upon anyone.

I used to think I could have relationships back after going through the last 14 years. Now, I know I cannot have those relationships back because of the choices of other people.

But I want those people to know I love them and I am happy for them. I really appreciate the message of this poem.

And, I even have notes within it proving that I was going to need to let go how I am doing. That is a comfort to my soul at this time and in this season of complete release from my past life.
