I'm sifting through the layers
Of who I used to be
Decluttering my things
Identifying me.
Every single item
I hold within my hands
I try to visualise
Its role in future plans.
Or does it represent
A past I want to know?
How do I 'curate' it
Preserve its memory glow?
I'm sifting through my life
Future, present, past
My story lives within
The things I have amassed.
I'm working through the layers
Who I was, am and will be
I'm sifting through my life
And distilling down to me.
