metanoia…a spiritual change of heart

let go…i heard it often as i lived through the day

it annoyed me no end and why i could not say

let go! let go! let go! they did not understand

they did not know i needed what i was seeking for my plan

i couldn’t let go…if i did..then…what would happen?

i did not want that crazy axman

days solidified into weeks and weeks into years

letting go was something i definitely feared

then a friend came into my life

unknowingly, challenging me to let go of my strife

to stop centering on me and feel the need of someone so free

still…i did not see…why must it be…why me?

i fought…and fought…and gave it much thought

and night fast came upon me and still i was distraught

then through the night and stillness of the open portals

came the light and  my sad defenses came to crumbles

i wept with pity for myself that all i needed was to let go

for in letting go… letting be…all that was sought would flow

    Oh My Goodness,,,,that is you best ever poem Jane! I laughed I cried I just completely enjoyed it. I could read it again in ten years and feel exactly the same as I do this moment. Bravo. You grow green and strong so quickly… You have tapped the universal, and spirit of the journey so very well. Take a look at my expression through my “Journeys Home” – the white piece, and you will see what I mean…lol
