Last Steps

Picked the last crumbs
from my plate.

Dusted the last words
from the table.

Defended the last child
against parents.

Defeated the last demon
inside the home.

Placed the last memory
in a lovely box.

Resisted the last urge
to revisit again.

Focused on the latest
beauty today.

Looked in the mirror:
myself at last.
