# 47 To pitch or keep

To pitch or keep
By Mary K. Mennenga

Sounds simple but it’s not
Tending to attach feelings to things
Makes it harder to let go
The usefulness is long gone
The memories attached are strong
Fear without it the memories will fade
Memories etch themselves on the heart
Always there waiting
When needed the most

Great poem and so very accurate. I can pitch or donate most anything no longer useful to me except... lol
Stay inspired!

Nice poem Mary.
If there are fond memories attached, then I think it is still useful!
Cheers

Michelle, Thank you and yes there are a few exception,of course!

Karen, You are right, there are a few things although broken,I don't have the heart to toss them out. Just looking at it brings back a flood of wonderful memories made over the years.
